Iceland - Waterfalls, geysirs and black sand beaches

Queen of the rock pile! 

Another quite photo heavy post so I won't go on and on - I can't recommend Iceland enough!

We left Reykjavik to do the 'Golden Circle' and traveled down the South coast to Vik. We stopped at lots of waterfalls, Geysir (seriously has the best visitor centre ever) and some black sand beaches!

This is Oxarafoss in  Pingvellir National Park.The entire area is very tourist friendly - there are loads of decked walkways and hand rails, plus lots of signs to tell you where to go/how far.

This is one of the pools at the Geysir site - the water is 80 - 100 C so no sticking your hands in!

This is Strokkur - he erupts every 10 minutes or so - I have a video on my Instagram if you want to see!

Black sand beaches are potentially the most breathtaking things I have ever seen - especially because we went when the weather was stormy - lots of dramatic crashing waves. 

This is a couple of days later at Skaftafell National park - look how drastically the weather changes!

The day of rainbows - the waterfall below is Skogafoss. I'd read about rainbows forming there, so at the first hint of sun, I made James drive us there - it was worth it - by far the best photo I think I've taken!
