19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Icelandic Highlands

his day was a miracle, on the way to this place it was raining like crazy and the visibility was 0. I checked the weather that in Highlands and it was supposed to be the "window of sun" ( Nobody believed me because you can't follow the weather forecast in Inceland but I had an intuition). When we arrived the sky opened and we decided to do all possible hikes until the sunset because you never know the conditions the next day. After eating some sandwitches we decided to climb some mountains. The hike was super steep ( I'm really afraid of the hights) but we decided to go further anyway. Even it was hard on the way back with the muddy path we will never regret that we had the opportunity to see this amazing rocks formation :)
