Having lived in Iceland for close to two years, it's pretty much impossible to convey its beauty in just a limited number of images, but this is my attempt.

No theme nor real coherence, aside from them all being taken in the same country, but here are 32 shots in a sort of tribute to Iceland.

The less famous mountains located right next to the very famous Kirkjufell. These mountains, however, are possibly more beautiful in my opinion.

11.28 a.m. To make up for the very short days during winter here, we get the most beautiful sunrises instead.

The Jon Snow Cave (Grjótagjá)

Don't let the cool color fool you, this cave is actually filled with water so hot, it's not safe to take a dip.

Most people who enter this cave will most probably focus on the actual waterfall, but with this light coming though, I found myself much more intrigued by its exit.

May not look the part from this angle, but this beach (Reynisfjara) has the most impressive waves.

Serious Eye Contact

Serious Eye Contact

First proper encounter with an arctic fox, which has ruined me a bit. This little guy was completely nonchalant to my presence, letting me photograph it as much as I wanted. It was actually me leaving the location first, which is never the case with animals otherwise. Since this meeting, my other 10+ fox encounters have not been able to live up to the same expectations, as this is apparently not how these little animals usually behave around people.

Not only is this little house surrounded by impressive mountains, but the water beneath it is filled with seals, making this my vision of the perfect home.

The Diamond Beach

The Diamond Beach

A must-visit location for anyone interested in photography. Also, apparently a walrus visited this place some time ago, which means that there will always be a tiny chance that you'll experience that too when going here.

Lava Falls

Lava Falls

A fraction of a great waterfall. Hraunfossar is an amazing place, but to capture all of it in one photo and actually do it justice is close to impossible. This is a location you need to visit in reality.

Living in Iceland, I've seen more seals than I'd ever expected. Next to these guys were maybe 70 more sunbathing sausages.

Wherever you are, you'll know you're close to an Icelandic horse. So, if you don't find any other motif calling your name, you can at least count on getting a good ol' horse photo by the end of the day.

Fly Sunset

Fly Sunset

The less lovely side of Iceland is the excessive number of flies. Though, they do at least turn out pretty alright on a photo.

Never would've thought. But I'm Australian so excessive flies are probably a relative concept.

Nowhere (except for maybe the heather in the Peak District) have I experienced a more colorful season. From early June and about a month on, you'll find Iceland completely colored purple.

You have not met an aggressive bird until you've encountered the arctic tern. Its hysteric sound is the only thing I can associate with this photo.

I'm from Sweden, so I'm familiar with the constant daylight, but for anyone less northern, I highly recommend this experience. Come in late June and you'll have endless photo opportunities all through the day and night. Seljalandsfoss is one of the most famous waterfalls in Iceland, meaning it's constantly surrounded by visitors, but as I drove here a little before 1 a.m. in June last year, I was able to soak in this location all by myself (which was unique then...).

Full Cheeks

Full Cheeks

Last summer, we came across a lighthouse surrounded by nothing but thousands of puffins. I've never seen anything like it—the sky was full of them, similar to when you see clouds of flies. Somehow I didn't manage to get a single photo of this, so I'm uploading a photo from the day I did instead. This little clown is from Látrabjarg.

Definition Of Tranquility

Definition Of Tranquility

I love Icelandic road signs. Driving in the far north, you'll find yourself surrounded by nothing but an empty landscape. This was one of the few houses we saw for a long time, yet in the middle of nowhere you'll come across a sign warning for people potentially passing the gravel road... When you drive in a very sparsely populated country you have to be reminded that there might actually be people around.

50% Of Vestrahorn

Moving to Iceland comes with having to endure a lot of wind, but that also means that the weather shifts insanely quickly. We were met by a very grey sky when we arrived at this beach, but the further we walked the more light we'd get in return.
