Iceclimbing in a glacier crevass (in the winter) is quite different than on frozen waterfalls or similar, we were told beforehand, since the ice is extremely hard as it has been compressed over a period of hundreds of years!
Therefore we decided to climb with a top rope for the begining ☺️
The experience was amazing! We were so fascinated that we stayed till the sun was already setting! We even had to hurry in the end to get off the ice before darkness 😁

This photo of me standing in front of Skogafoss, was taken by my best friend! 😊
I think you'll see that his style of photography is a bit different then mine! I probably would never have taken a photo from that exact angle, or with the water drops like that, but I think it is really cool! ☺️
This is what makes photography interesting: Yes, we are not creating something from nothing and yes, we only use some technical gadget to capture what is already there and what everybody else could potentially see in real life, too!
BUT everybody still sees it differently, looks at it in a different way and photography enables us to share this personal view the way we look at things with others! That's what makes every photographer special 😉

In Iceland you are so far up north, that the sunsets are incredibly long and amazing 😍 Driving through those amazing landscapes is even more awesome when the sky is burning like this 😊
Most streets are gravel roads! Only route 1, the ringroad around the whole island, is paved and built very well! When leaving route 1, sometimes you drive on for hours without meeting another car! This is a very special feeling ☺️ For all those caring about cars (😂):
In Iceland we drove a lot of Suzukis, Hyundais and similar! They all did their job very well! But when we had this Skoda Octavia for a week, the difference in built quality was very much noticable! It just felt more solid, no squealing or rattling! I enjoyed beeing back in a VAG-car (while my girlfriend didn't care at all 😁) (btw: this is not a sponsored post, I feel like today it is necessary to mention this) #Iceland #loveiceland #alliceland #exploreiceland #thisisiceland #MyStopover #skoda #octavia #skodaoctavia #skodagram #picoftheday #photooftheday #sony #canon #nikon #dji #gopro #simplyadventure #lifeofadventure #beautifuldestinations #roamtheplanet #discoverearth #wherewillwegonext #makemoments #exploremore #goexplore #destinationearth #exploringtheworld #welltravelled #zeigmal

Here you can see a wild Sony alpha 6000 in it's natural habitat 😂
I've taken soo many photos with that camera that at one point I decided now it's time to take some pictures of the camera 😁
The lense that's on there is the Zeiss sel1670 f4 😉

This was in Seltjarnarnes, one of the 7 municipalities of Reykjavík Area, literally just 200m from where we lived! 😍
Living so close to the sea was an amazing experience! Our daily commute to university took about 20 minutes by bike and we just had to follow the path along the coast 😊
In the picture you see my girlfriend's sister when she visited us for one week 😉

Sorry guys, that I haven't posted a lot in the last couple of days 🙈 I'm kind of busy as university started again in Germany and I have a big conference coming up! I'll try to get back to posting every or every second day, though! 😉
Answering every single comment just takes too long, so I will definitely still read every single comment, but I will probably only answer questions and longer comments from now on! I hope you are going to be fine with that ☺️
Have a wonderful week my friends ✌️ #Iceland #loveiceland #alliceland #exploreiceland #thisisiceland #reykjavik #sealover #picoftheday #photooftheday #sony #canon #nikon #summerfeeling #keepitwild #simplyadventure #wildernessculture #lifeofadventure #liveoutdoors #beautifuldestinations #roamtheplanet #discoverearth #wherewillwegonext #makemoments #exploremore #stayandwander #goexplore #destinationearth #exploringtheworld #welltravelled #lovelifeoutside

This is Kirkjufellsfoss (the waterfall in the foreground) and Kirkjufell (the mountain in the background hidden in the fog). The night before we had put up our tent on green grass! In the morning everything was white! Even our tent was covered in snow 😂

The winter in northern Iceland only consists of shades of blue!
All greens and yeallows disappear completely under a thick layer of ice and snow!
If you are lucky though, for a few hours a day, on the horizon a red, almost purple, sun will burn its way through the clouds 😉
