Iceland fall colors glacier
Iceland fall colors glacier, and other things were very much in my thoughts yesterday. First of all the weather was so very cold and beautiful, therefore the air was clear and fresh. Iceland showed it best face. But Iceland was cold, and all the fall colors had disappeared. One could feel that winter has arrived. Actually, yesterday was “The First Day of Winter” according to the Icelandic calendar. I was thinking where we were about one month ago. We were at a glacier, Icelandic name “Virkisjökull”. People were walking with crampons on the glacier, looking at the beautiful fall colors all around them. We and our people were more at the bottom with all the beautiful Icelandic Flora. Our cameras were working overtime because where ever we looked there were more and more fall colors. And do not forget the glacier.
Iceland fall colors glacier everywhere
All around us were Iceland fall colors glacier are more spectacular than the one we were looking at. There were always more to photograph. The light was beautiful, the sun was shining on the glacier, not too much though. All the tourists that were going on a hike had a merry look on their faces.
Obviously, Iceland gets a lot of tourists, which is good. Everybody wants to have a nice holiday. On our t0urs, we try to include all the most interesting places there are to be found in Iceland. Fall colors fall into that category. To see a glacier up close, and even walk on it is a highlight not to be missed. At the same time, we should pay respect to nature. Iceland being up by the Arctic Circle has very sensitive flora. In Iceland, you are in the Tundra Zone. Therefore we must keep to marked trails and not leave footprints off trails as these take years to recuperate. “Take nothing but pictures. Leave nothing but footprints om trails. Do not go off trail. Kill nothing but time” Let us all bear that in mind and live up to it.
