Iceland in 15 pictures

Just spent the holidays in Iceland. After spending about 3 months in Africa in the last year, I kind of got an urge to visit some place completely different before the year ended, Iceland happened to be on my destination-list for a long time. So Iceland it was!

Visiting Iceland in December means a limited amount of daylight; roughly from ten in the morning until four in the afternoon. But, there was lots of snow, implying no chance of seeing any northern lights, if there even was any recent sun-activity.

Here is my visit to Southern Iceland in 10 pictures:
