New on 500px : Natural Baths by DrewNicoll by DrewNicoll

Here’s the second photo from my travels in Iceland. This is the Natural baths in Myvatn, northern Iceland. the waters intense blue colour is due to the sulfur from the ground – it may look nice but it smells very eggy!

These waters are quieter and more cosey than those of the Blue Lagoon, so well worth a visit. The aurrounding landscape is baron and almost desert like and yet behind the hills lays this little gem to relax and unwind.

Thanks for viewing, here is the website for the baths below:

New on 500px : Skogafoss by DrewNicoll by DrewNicoll

I have recently been lucky enough to tour Iceland. on the final few days we arrived at one of Iceland’s most iconic natural marvels – Skogafoss.

At a height of 60m and 25m wide this waterfall is vast and incredibly powerful, the opportunity to hike up the 300+ stairs to the top should not be overlooked. There are also lovely cafe’s for when you return, hosting a friendly and warm welcome from the locals.

In this photo, a man with his girlfriend sprinted off towards the spray and posed for her to take a picture. I seized the opportunity to photograph him to try and give you a more striking perspective of this natural giant.

Thanks, Drew
