Across the lava fields by fueast

Across the lava fields

I wonder how long it has taken for the moss to cover these boulders from the lava flow. Pretty fascinating place. Some strange creatures lurking around on the rocks at sunset...
Interesting - just compared two uploads for this and the lower resolution pic looks better.
totally freakin' stunning...

@northy Ta! Sounds like you need to visit Iceland!
December 7th, 2014  
@fueast it's actually in the cards... fingers crossed... this past summer when we went to Croatia it was a toss up between there and Iceland... really hoping Iceland will be next year...

@northy For a small fee I could put a word in for you :-0

Are you on your way to the Blue Lagoon?
December 7th, 2014  
Wonderful capture. Fav!

@blueberry1222 No back home now - didnt make it there but I'm guessing its fairly touristy?
December 7th, 2014  
Another amazing shot. What a place to visit.

Magnificent countryside! Are those photographers on top? I think I can make out a couple tripods and cameras.
December 7th, 2014  
@skipt07 Hi yes I left them in for scale
December 7th, 2014  
@fueast - You always have had the great fortune to have someone walking into your photographs. But on top of a mountain? :-)
December 7th, 2014  
Crikey Alison this is amazing...you have got a cracker here......those boulders are so unusual & to catch two soul mates on the top of these weird grass covered boulders is just ace! Fave,
December 7th, 2014  
@skipt07 To be fair in this case they were fellow snappers off the trip. In Iceland you could wait a long time for a lone walker to pass through one of your shots!
December 7th, 2014  
I'm greatly enjoying Iceland via your eyes and camera. These moss covered lava formations don't look like Hawaii's lava deposits. Thanks.
FAV!

@annamaker Thanks that's interesting. I guess the climate is very different. I do wonder how long it took this moss to establish itself.
December 7th, 2014  
Looks like a moon landscape. The two figures make it even more special and mystical. Fav!
December 7th, 2014  
Amazing shot.. Like in the movies!! A Fav

Wow! Love it.
December 7th, 2014  
love the light on the moss - wonderful image!
December 8th, 2014  
@fueast It is touristy, but it is beautiful. But it wrecked havoc on my hair and dried it out and I had to cut it because it was so bad.
December 8th, 2014  
Fav! Very fascinating
December 8th, 2014  
What a gorgeous image! Love the puff of cloud and the road leading to the back of the shot.
December 8th, 2014  
Fav, lovely, and the photographers add scale, terrific
December 8th, 2014  
Just so otherworldly.
December 8th, 2014  
A huge "thank you" for sharing this with us.

This is a magical shot! Absolute fav!
