Sigrún Davíðsdóttir's Icelog

Some Icelandic views

make a comment

Views, in the literal sense. Here is a website with some webcams in Iceland. You can see people in Reykjavik walking over Austurvollur (the little square in front of Althingi), walking along Tjornin, the pond in the centre, or swimming in the Blue Lagoon (though that would mostly be foreigners; I wonder if they realise they can wave to mom and dad back home).

For those needing their fix of Icelandic nature there are webcams by Eyjafjallajokull (no visibility these minutes), Katla and Hekla (the mountains are hidden in clouds right now). There is a view of Thingvellir (like a Christmas card), Geysir (webcam not working for the moment), Gullfoss (a melé of something that could be clouds or water) and Jokulsarlon (very soothing to watch the flowing water in a landscape of ice and snow).

An absolutely brilliant way to nourish your soul on beauty and calm and let nature remind you that there is something larger and mightier than eurozone worries, currency regulations, creditors and politicians who lack direction.
