When I travel I often say “now this is really away”, because it is very much away, off the beaten track. This night finds me on a new level of away.
Tucked up in the hills of middle Iceland, abutting a glacier, I am away.
So how did I get here? After my morning pastoral time, we took off to drive around the Vatnsnes Peninsula. One of the shorter distance around peninsula, it might have taken a couple of hours to circle around. But as usual it took us twice that.
So many vistas to pull over to marvel at and to photograph.
The M indicates a layby for pulling over on the narrow road so oncoming cars can pass. We took it to mean a photo pull off spot as well.
Continuing the drive we took a beautiful walk high above the coast. From this vantage point we had a good view of the 15 meter high haystack.
Icelandic horses gathered at the end of the peninsula drive.
A beautiful day from start to finish.
