6.15.16 – One thing I love about Iceland is the sheer beauty of the entire country. The Ring Road, or Route 1, circles the perimeter of the country, taking travelers from one spectacle to the next. But inbetween the major sights, the landscape is still awe-inspiring. This photo was taken at a simple pulloff in the middle of nowhere, but it depicts how much of the countryside looks. The seemingly endless fields of lupines cover the landscape, all the way to the staggering mountains and glaciers.
