Someone was waiting for us deep inside the path. A home for a legendary figure. More info in the next future post…Scroll & check the last image for hint ;) .
And Welcome to #Dimmuborgir (dimmu "dark", borgir "cities" or "forts", "castles”, Just few minutes away from #Lake#Mývatn itself. Dimmuborgir is a large area of unusually shaped #lava fields east of Mývatn in Iceland. The Dimmuborgir area is composed of various #volcanic caves and #rock#formations , reminiscent of an ancient collapsed citadel (hence the name). The dramatic structures are one of Iceland's most popular natural tourist attractions, including the location itself was part of the movie shooting #Filmmaking series #GamesOfThrones .
The Dimmuborgir area consists of a massive, collapsed lava tube formed by a lava lake flowing in from a large #eruption in the #Þrengslaborgir and #Lúdentsborgir crater row to the East, about 2300 years ago. At Dimmuborgir, the lava pooled over a small lake. As the lava flowed across the wet sod, the water of the marsh started to boil, the vapour rising through the lava forming lava #pillars from drainpipe size up to several meters in diameter. As the lava continued flowing towards lower ground in the Mývatn area, the top crust collapsed, but the hollow pillars of solidified lava remained. The lava lake must have been at least 10 meters deep, as estimated by the tallest structures still standing.
The lava flow surface remains partly intact around the Dimmuborgir area, so that the Dimmuborgir itself sits below the surrounding surface area. The area is characterised by large hollow cell- or chamber-like structures formed around bubbles of vapour, and some dramatically standing lava pillars. Several of the chambers and pillar bases are large enough to house humans, giving rise to the term "castles" (borgir). #guidetoiceland#visiticeland#extremeiceland#arcticadventures#Iceland#Icelandair#TröllExpeditions#Trollxpeditions#SagaTravel#GOT
September 9th 2018. Iceland.
Everywhere you look in Iceland there are epic views. It’s not easy to represent in a photograph the scale or mood of the view. This is a 4 shot panorama of the distant mountains taken from pingvellir national park.
What’s the most beautifull #vineyard you have ever seen? This is the #volcanic vineyard of la Geria, #lazarote Spain. Have you ever seen such a magical place?

I love this photo for a ridiculous amount of reasons but here’s my top 3:
1. I have snow in my hair
2. I really did feel as happy as that smile
3. If you look really closely at the top of my hood, it looks like I have tiny people standing on my head
Búðakirkja sits on a volcanic plain isolated from the rest of Iceland’s Snæfellsness peninsula. Like many places in Iceland it feels like you’re driving to the middle of nowhere but then encounter the most peaceful and serene settings!
Handmade necklace from Croatia ➰ p.s. Очередная безделушка, которая скоро наверняка будет погребена вместе с остальными, привезенными из разных стран, но я давно хотела себе что-то из вулканического камня. Каждый шарик индивидуальной неправильной формы и любимого черного цвета 🖤
