In the wind ravaged country of Iceland, it is a rarity to see such stillness. This breathtaking scene lasted just moments. Hugleiðingar, Icelandic for reflections, the scenery emits an almost silver like quality.
One of the most beautiful places in Iceland is also one of the deadliest. The amazing light, and stunning crashing waves give a deceptively tranquil feeling. Getting too close to the water, however, can lead to certain death, as the notoriously unpredictable waves can engulf and sweep away the unsuspecting.
The mountain, shrouded in morning cloud, looms large over this little Icelandic Horse. I was drawn to the juxtaposition of the flat lands and immense mountains that rise from the earth in Iceland, yet the ruggedness of the horse is paralleled with the mountain scape behind.
The iconic Icelandic horse is sacred to the people of Iceland, robust and stubborn. They'll fiercely front the harsh winters and continue to go about their business as they see fit. They are truely one of the most wonderful creatures.
