Hello from @iuriebelegurschi providing you with your daily dose of Iceland! People are always asking me where to find lupines in Iceland. Actually, they are very easy to find! During summer, these gorgeous purple flowers are in bloom all around the country, from the coast towards the inland. You can find them very often along roads and by lakes. Although they may seem natural to the environment, lupines were actually introduced many years ago as a means for fertilisation and to manage levels of nitrogen within the soil. However, they soon spread like wildfire, thriving in the raw Icelandic soil and covering the landscape with their vibrant hues. Some Icelanders regard the lupine as a weed, though it has been used medicinally in Iceland for decades. It can be brewed into a tea to maintain health and for building up the immune system. In Iceland, you can actually find this tea in many health food stores. The best time for photographing lupines is during the Midnight Sun season in Iceland, when hours upon hours of golden light make for soft and dreamy landscapes. I took this photo in Vík í Mýrdal, a remote village by the sea in the south of Iceland, where you may find fields of lupines overlooking the famous Reynisdrangar sea stacks. Do you have lupines where you live? #iceland #guidetoiceland #mystopover

The days are beginning to get shorter here in Iceland but the sunsets are still just as calm and beautiful 💙 I love shooting along the coast because there are so many compositions to be explored. Have you been to Iceland? Where was your favourite place? If you haven’t been here yet, which location is at the top of your list? 🇮🇸 #iceland #guidetoiceland #mystopover . . . . . #500px #beautifuldestinations #doyoutravel #earthpix #wildernessculture #earthfocus #reykjavik #igersiceland #wheniniceland #wonderlusticeland #ig_iceland #vsco #moodygrams #visualsoflife #canon_photos

The last rays of sunlight penetrate the deep darkness of an ice cave. It’s almost winter soon, when we’ll be able to explore ice caves again ☺️ #iceland #guidetoiceland #mystopover . . . . . #500px #beautifuldestinations #doyoutravel #earthpix #wildernessculture #earthfocus #reykjavik #igersiceland #wheniniceland #wonderlusticeland #ig_iceland #vsco #moodygrams #visualsoflife #canon_photos

The snow has melted and now all of the roads to the lush paradise that is the Highlands are open. You can wander to your heart’s content 💙 #iceland #guidetoiceland #mystopover . . . . . #500px #beautifuldestinations #doyoutravel #earthpix #wildernessculture #earthfocus #reykjavik #igersiceland #wheniniceland #wonderlusticeland #ig_iceland #vsco #moodygrams #visualsoflife #canon_photos

The sun is out in Iceland today and it’s a beautiful day to go to the magical ice beach! This black sand beach sits adjacent to the famous Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon, where icebergs calve off the nearby Breiðamerkurjökull glacier and drift out towards sea. They are then pummelled by the waves and reshaped into these diamond like chunks.

You’ve probably seen lots of moody photos of Vestrahorn. Here it is on a good day 😃 It’s not often that the sun is out these days in Iceland. We are all hoping for better weather this week! Have a great weekend everyone ☺️☀️ #iceland #guidetoiceland #mystopover . . . . . #500px #beautifuldestinations #doyoutravel #earthpix #wildernessculture #earthfocus #reykjavik #igersiceland #wheniniceland #wonderlusticeland #ig_iceland #vsco #moodygrams #visualsoflife #canon_photos

Have you ever stood at the mouth of a glacial tongue? Glaciers are large sheets of ice above frozen rock. As they melt, they slide over the rock and break away. This is called “receding” and it is also how icebergs are created ❄️ Can you name the glacier that is receding the fastest in Iceland? #iceland #guidetoiceland #mystopover . . . . . #500px #beautifuldestinations #doyoutravel #earthpix #wildernessculture #earthfocus #reykjavik #igersiceland #wheniniceland #wonderlusticeland #ig_iceland #vsco #moodygrams #visualsoflife #canon_photos

Have you ever been to the middle of nowhere? In Iceland you can. These are the mysterious rhyolite mountains of the Highlands, swathed in the dusky shadow of a cloud.

It’s the middle of summer and at a balmy 12°C, this is as warm as it’ll get in Reykjavík 😅 Head to the north or east of Iceland though and the temperatures will be warmer. This photo was taken in the dreamy and steamy Kerlingarfjöll mountain range, situated in the mysterious Highlands of Iceland. The temperature beneath the ground here can get very hot. What’s the weather like where you are today? #iceland #guidetoiceland #mystopover . . . . . #500px #beautifuldestinations #doyoutravel #earthpix #wildernessculture #earthfocus #reykjavik #igersiceland #wheniniceland #wonderlusticeland #ig_iceland #vsco #moodygrams #visualsoflife #canon_photos

What do you see? From above, it may seem abstract but these patterns are actually part of an intricate network of rivers that flow from the glaciers in Iceland towards the sea. #iceland #guidetoiceland #mystopover . . . . . #500px #beautifuldestinations #doyoutravel #earthpix #wildernessculture #earthfocus #reykjavik #igersiceland #wheniniceland #wonderlusticeland #ig_iceland #vsco #moodygrams #visualsoflife #canon_photos
