Skogafoss by Strappa The legend of the first Viking in Skógar has it that the first Viking settler in the area, Þrasi Þórólfsson, buried a treasure in a cave behind the waterfall.

Many years later, a boy from the area found the chest containing the treasure, but he was only able to grasp the ring on the side of the chest before it disappeared again. http://flic.kr/p/s83ti5

Lava Rust by janet little We stopped at a beautiful stretch of coastline on the east coast of Iceland, where waves crash against a tremendous sea stack. Once again, it was raining and windy, so I took to pointing my camera downwards at details on the beach at the base of the cliffs, where I found this scene reminiscent of a lava flow. http://flic.kr/p/akbLGW
