Nikon FM - Fuji X-tra 400when we finally reached Geysir and Strokkur I was overwhelmed by the amount of people visiting the site: tourists travel easily from Reykjavík to the Golden Circle and the amount of people there was distressing compared to the lonely landscapes we drove across on the F35. despite the crowd of tourists I am glad we got the chance to see the geysers: the eruptions of Strokkur were an incredible sight! besides we had plenty of time to enjoy solitude on our way back to Blönduós - when a storm caught us and the tortuous gravel road became quite scary to drive on.

I would like to share here a few more photographs from the second part of our trip along the route F35. after stopping at Hveravellir we decided to continue driving southern to see the famous geysers Geysir and Strokkur - which didn't appear to be too far from where we were. we ended up taking much longer to reach the geysers though: the most spectacular part of the F35 in fact was just about to begin and we had to stop several times to admire and photograph those incredibly colourful mountains.
