Aurora Borealis, Iceland
White Night, Iceland
Blue glacial ice on a black sand beach. These photos were taken on the south-east coast of Iceland near Vatnajökull National Park (February 2017).
When glacial ice appears blue, it is because compression has made it denser and forced out the tiny air bubbles between crystals. This allows light to penetrate deeper into the surface before it reflects back. The ice can then absorb a small amount of red or infrared light, which leaves a bluish tint in the reflected light.
When glacial ice appears white, this is usually because it still has many tiny air bubbles. Bubbles and particles in the ice scatter the light.
It’s July and I still can’t get over how robbed Iceland was of their Eurovision win
Top of the pops is Honduras, leader of all! Top 3 for newcomers Albania and Sweden! Kiribati, Saint Martin and Netherlands and others have stormed onto the top 20 list. Take note of Chile, Côte d'Ivoire and Iceland! Hot outside top 20. ¡Ganador!

‘’I probably didn’t, but it feels like I spent my entire childhood walking around on the lava fields…- did you know that NASA sent their astronauts to Iceland to rehearse before they sent them to the moon? - It’s like a moonscape there, with volcanoes and hot springs, the largest waterfall in Europe, very strong nature, but no trees… So I spent most of my childhood walking around alone, in nature, with my school bag on my shoulders, and that’s how I learnt to sing. I lived next to the last block of flats, and then it was moss and tundra. I used to walk a lot on my own and sing at the top of my lungs. I think a lot of Icelandic people do this. You don’t go to church or a psychotherapist – you go for a walk and feel better.’’

Hiking up and then skiing on Iceland’s Hekla volcano - look at all the basaltic rock around them.
