Photographs from Husavik and Lake Myvatn Area, Iceland

My journey to Iceland in July and August, 2015, consisted of:

  • 3 nights in Reykjavik
  • 2 nights in Skogar
  • 2 nights near Jökulsárlón
  • 3 nights near Lake Myvatn
  • 3 nights in Holmavik
  • 2 nights in Alftanes

In total, I took over 8900 photographs of this delightful and stunning country. It’s taking me a bit of time to go through and process them all, but I will get there eventually.

Below are several of the photographs I took in the Lake Mývatn area, up near Húsavík, around the Diamond Circle, and along the Eyjafjörður. The other stops will follow, one post at a time. Thank you for enjoying!

Celtic Fairies, Fables, and Folklore! Bestselling author (top #100 Amazon Canada, #1 in Paranormal Fantasy, Amazon Canada) Christy Nicholas, also known as Green Dragon, is an author, artist and accountant. After she failed to become an airline pilot, she quit her ceaseless pursuit of careers that begin with 'A', and decided to concentrate on her writing. Since she has Project Completion Disorder, she is one of the few authors with NO unfinished novels. Christy has her hands in many crafts, including digital art, beaded jewelry, writing, and photography. In real life, she's a CPA, but having grown up with art all around her (her mother, grandmother and great-grandmother are/were all artists), it sort of infected her, as it were. She wants to expose the incredible beauty in this world, hidden beneath the everyday grime of familiarity and habit, and share it with others. She uses characters out of time and places infused with magic and myth. Combine this love of beauty with a bit of financial sense and you get an art business. She does local art and craft shows, as well as sending her art to various science fiction conventions throughout the country and abroad. Facebook: Homepage: Blog: Twitter:
