Iceland - South to East - {i}

this was the longest drive in a single day. we drove more than 500 km; stopping at many places. 
after leaving the the old farm house we went to see the plane crash site. it was few kilometres off the road but still many people visited. i also saw a beautiful yellow flowers field

then we drove towards black sand beach. this was the longest beach i have seen in iceland. i loved the sky it was half clear and half cloudy. on the cliff there was a huge colony of puffins but they were quite far for taking photos. i watched them for sometime as they were flying back and forth bringing fish from the sea. 

here are some photos taken on that day. i will share more in part two.

ps - in the 4th photo the tiny black dots are actually the puffins.

  1. Wow! That yellow sea in the second photo. Nice that you had some time to spend in Vík. Our bus only stopped for 15 minutes and we ran to the supermarket (gas station) to buy food. And the plane! Beautiful.
