30.08.2009 Iceland‧§ Day 6 § Jewel of the North

I was completely shocked, and so was my sister. Then I thought I might have to take another bus to see Dettifoss which was going to depart instead. But then the staff in the tourist information was very, very kind and helpful that she asked the bus driver of the bus which was going to Dettifoss to drop us at the gas station up on the hill, and rang the bus driver of the tour to ask him to pick us up there. It was because after departing from the bus terminal, the tour bus had gone to the Akureyri airport pick up other tourists, so it would pass the main road outside Akureyri again. We were really, really lucky. All the staff we had met in the tourist information in Akureyri were very kind and helpful, mind you it was not always the case in other places in Iceland. When we finally got on the tour bus, I took out our travel plan and schedule and found that I somehow got the time wrong on the schedule! Oh dear.. The weather was bad, it was OK at the beginning when we were in Godafoss (yes, second visit but on the other side), but then became rainy and even foggy... Since I only had a roll of 120 left, there would not be many photos in this post. (I did use the DSLR to take quite a few shots, but I don't really the outcome much, so it is very likely that those photos will never be shared up here) The walk in Lake Myvatn area Dettifoss, trust me, it just looked too dreamy in the photos I took - I don't know why it is so - the water was surging, the sound of water was so loud that I almost have to shout so that my sister could hear me, it was like thundering. Of course it was not as ear-splitting as real thunder but then you can imagine how stunning it was. The density of water droplets was so high that it did not differ much from light shower. And because of the water droplets, the rocks were very slippy when we were closed to the waterfall, it was a bit dangerous when we were on the edge of the rocks. The area of we walked passed before we got to Dettifoss was like Mordor in the Lord of the Rings. It looked kind of beautiful in the photo, but actually it had kind of death atmosphere - very slient and hardly any living things out there, only rocks. We were almost lost on our way back to the bus, there was only very few signs and we were like walking in the middle of nowhere (Well, indeed we were...) and the scenery around us was more or less the same - rather scary... Once you have been to Iceland, you will noticed that there are not many trees in Iceland, and they are rather, short, haha. "What do you do if you lost in the forest? Just stand up." Ásbyrgi was a very beautiful area full of the colourful lovely bushes. Hljóðaklettar We were supposed to see a great deal on the bus. However, due to the rain and fog, we had missed most of it... Oh Krafla... I think I might have to take the tour again next time when I go to Iceland ... 拍攝器材:Fuji GA645i + Fuji Pro 160S
