Four more pics. These are from Pingvellir, a site that is dear to all Icelanders. This is where they have gathered from all over the island for centuries and is the place where laws were laid down and judgements made. It is also where they went to declare and celebrate their independence in 1944. A fantastic spot, literally, because it is also on the line where the North American and European tectonic plates meet and rupture the Earth's surface, filling in from below. All taken with the D600 (before I broke it) and the 24-85mm kit lens.

Nice set of pictures warth man. Always wanted to go to Iceland, but probably never will.
Nephew off to there tomorrow for the week, possibly going to Seljalandsfoss.
Probably had more snow back at home up north than in Iceland! :shock:

Iceland was allays one of the worlds destinations i wanted to get to. A little too far away now !

From a geologists POV its a bit like NZ and a mecca for geology. Probably one of the only places on earth where you can stand with one foot on two different oceanic plates !

Your second shot is a great geology shot.

The strange ripply formation and broken blocks is a typical lava flow formation called "A' a'" pronounced ah-ah. :) Pretty typical of basaltic lava flows found in iceland and hawaii.

If you had taken the shot whilst it was being formed -which was probably not that long ago ! it would have been around 1000° under foot :o

geology lesson over :)

Hi Robbon, we did the "standing on two tectonic plates at once" bit and I have to say that it was certainly nothing like 1000 degrees when we did! You're right too - lots to be fascinated with in Iceland.

Arthur - it could be worth considering. Only two hours twenty minutes from Manchester! And you're right too. Apart from the snow being blown off the surface or generated by waterfalls, there was more snowfall in the UK than in Iceland during our break. But Iceland, with the wind that prevailed at the time, was definitely colder.

Thank you carlos. Camera and lens came back today and all seems to be in order. Final price £155, so well under my agreed excess. No complaints from me and good service from the Nikon repair centre.

Hope you are enjoying your D7100.

Great stuff. 8) Seems a very good price, i'd have expected quite a bit more than that tbh.

(not too sure yet on D7100, but i'll update on the thread soon :wink: )

Last batch - I'll add no more, promise! All taken with the Sony RX100.

Near the southern tip. Volcanic beach.

The very tip of the glacier's snout. Note the discoloured ice in the foreground, caused by embedded volcanic ash.

The glacier, this time with the RX100. Most of, if not all of the material in the foreground is of volcanic origin.

A pic of the last bit of white ice at the snout of the glacier where we stood.
