The View into the Blue
When driving through the high lands in Iceland, it is important to stay on the tracks that are established. Even if the area looks like a big gravel bed, this is glacial sediment that is conquered, slowly, by plants and animals and if you drive over it, you destroy the flora that is already estabilished.
This is the section between Snaefells snow cap and Vatnajökull glacier. The glacier is that white edge in the back ground. You can not believe how big it is, untill you are right there. And then from horizon to horizon, there is just that gigantic egde of ice.
