Iceland-Land of Wild Horses and Gorgeous Scenery

This is a glacial lagoon called Jökulsárlón (also considered a glacial lake), and those are icebergs that you see. This is considered one of the natural wonders of Iceland. The bright blue color of many of the icebergs is considered a feature. (Other icebergs are white.) The color depends on the air trapped within the ice. The lake has been formed by melting glaciers.

The James Bond movie, A View to Kill, was shot here. I was surprised at the number of Bond movies that have filmed in Iceland. Of course, the scenery is dramatic.
Isn't this church cute? I love the simplicity, and the pretty color.

The Gulfoss waterfall below is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Iceland. The water seems to drop off the edge of a cliff. The country has hundreds of waterfalls and they are quite dramatic. The next waterfall is Skógafoss.
Here are some of the wild horses.
