A trip to Namafjall and Hverir is a wonderland of geothermal colors and textures that overwhelms the senses. This amazing area was a top priority for our trip and I'd strongly suggest that if you plan to visit Iceland please put the entire Myvatn area at the very top of your list too! Just an incredible base of operation for you to explore. You could easily spend your entire time here and not even scratch the surface of the photographic possibilities. The Lake Myvatn area is perhaps most famous for its bird life and is home to more different species of ducks than any other place in the world. The lake itself also presents some nice photographic scenes too but it was the geothermal area of Namafjall and Hverir that captured our imagination the most. The weather was quite nice with heavy clouds and intermittent rain showers. And since we were photographing from 10pm to 4am, we had the entire place to ourselves. The plumes from the steam vents along with the flowing clouds from the long exposures combined for surreal images. And that's exactly what it feels like when you're there. No way this place is for real!! The camping options in the area are perfect, we settled in at the Bjarg camp site in the town of Reyklahlid right on the bank of Lake Myvatn. Could not get any better.
