The weather on Iceland changes quickly and is often hard to predict. Most people experience rain, snow, hail, strong winds, fog, clear skies and heavy clouds during their visit. We got all of this in one morning.
We started driving into the mountains a couple hours before sunrise, to ensure that we would find the best spots to view the rising sun. As our scouting trip a couple days earlier was ended before we even reached the lake, due to extreme wind and snowfall and no visibility of the road, we had not yet had the chance to explore the area. However I had some ideas of where we could go after studying this place on maps and reading online.
