Iceland - Dustin Waits

Landmannalaugar, located in the Fjallabak Nature Reserve, is a beautiful destination for outdoor enthusiasts in the Highlands of Iceland. This area is a hot spot for day hikers, overnight campers, and horseback riders. It is also the northern-most end of the Laugavegur Trail and serves as the starting point to the trail for all of the backpackers who hike it from north to south. This image was shot on the first day of the hike. I couldn't help but turn around and look back toward the north to admire the colorful mountains, steam vents, and the bright blue-green thermal pool in the foreground.
