My husband and I took a drive around Iceland this past July and were simply amazed by the beauty we encountered. The night we came across the boiling mud pits was one of my favorites. It was the clearest night we had thus far on our journey and we witnessed Iceland's 'Midnight Sunset' that night. And I couldn't of wished for a better night for us to witness such a beautiful light, as it casted warmth against all the textures that existed in this wonderful location as the ground reminded us it was alive!

Location: Namaskard, Iceland
