I love tundra ❤❤❤. Kocham jej: - letnie kolory; - piękne krajobrazy; - rozległą przestrzeń; - surowe warunki; - niskie temperatury powietrza; - nieskazitelną przyrodę; - tańczącą na niebie zorzę polarną. Tundra jest dla mnie odpowiednikiem wysokich gór. Tylko, że tutaj nie grozi mi upadek z wysokości 😅. Tutaj chcąc przetrwać musisz walczyć. Tundra jest idealna dla survivalowców. Tutaj człowiek jest w stanie sprawdzić możliwości fizyczne i psychiczne swojego organizmu. Codzienne życie w tundrze jest trudniejsze. Odległości między siedliskami ludzkimi są spore. Często wynoszą one kilkadziesiąt a nawet kilkaset kilometrów. Mieszkańcy tundry jeśli chcą przetrwać muszą się wzajemnie wspierać. Co powoduje, że więzi rodzinne i społeczne są silniejsze. Może to też tęsknota za tymi wartościami mnie tam ciągnie? 🤔 A Wy w jakiej strefie klimatycznej/roślinnej się najlepiej czujecie? Ja po rocznej przerwie (wizyta w ciepłych krajach) już wiem, że w przyszłym roku wracam w okolice koła podbiegunowego, bo tam mi zdecydowanie lepiej 😀🌍 Photos by Tomasz Gawlas . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ________________________________ #iceland #islandia #plant #tundra #windy #outdoor #mountains #icelandinpursuitofadream #flower #water #roadtrip #instatravel #travelblogger #nature #travel #trip #biketrip #visiticeland #exploreiceland #expedition #adventure #discover #landscape #landscapephotography #travelgram #traveling #rower #kemping #góry #westfjords
Another day, another geothermal tub to warm up in in the midst of a very snowy walk through the #westfjords . . . #iceland 🇮🇸 #icelandtravel #travelphotography #hotpot #geothermalpool #guidetoiceland #wheniniceland
Claudia Grevsmuehl was one of the participants of the last Blue Bank accelerator. She came to work on a children's book about an Icelandic sheep that doesn't want to live in Iceland anymore. It's tired of the constant light in the summer and the dark winters so it tries to escape to England where the Queen of Sheep lives! . "During this accelerator I hope to make as many illustrations as I can and perhaps get some publishing ideas. It has been very helpful to spend time at a place away from my everyday distractions" said Claudia.
"Many say that photographing Iceland is an easy task because of all the stunning landscapes. As far as this might be true to an extent, the nature paired with our rich culture and heritage is something that can inspire to explore many new and different angles of experiencing Iceland. Westfjords are a great example of that, where history of the locations adds another level to the rugged terrain and endless fjords.The northernmost village Bolungarvík and the Ósvör museum for example has been a fishing port since settlement, giving an insight into rough life out on the ocean. The natural hot pools in the middle of a remote fjord allow for relaxation in the most unexpected moment. The only windmill with a long history standing on a picturesque island surrounded by seals taking rest in sun." By @thechrishau via @inspiredbyiceland
Kiragg is a mountain in Forsand municipality in Rogaland county, Norway. The 1,110-metre tall mountain sits on the southern shore of the Lysefjorden, just southwest of the village of Lysebotn. Its northern side is a massive cliff, plunging 984 meters almost straight down into the Lysefjorden which you can see in the picture here. ——- كيراج هو جبل في بلدية فورساند في مقاطعة روقالاند ، النرويج. يجلس الجبل الذي يبلغ طوله 1110 متر على الشاطئ الجنوبي لِليفجوردن ، جنوب غرب قرية ليسبوتن. على الجانب الشمالي منحدر هائل ، يرتفع 984 متر تقريبًا إلى الأسفل في مضيق 'لايز' البحري الذي يمكنك رؤيته في الصورة هنا ——- Kjerag, Norway 🇳🇴 ——— #norway #norge #kjerag #kjeragbolten #norway 🇳🇴 #norwaynature #norway2day #Norwayphotos #visitnorway #dreamynorway #highlightsnorway #landscapesofnorway #bestofnorway #norwayhike #ilovenorway #haditravels #haditravelsnorway #followforfollowback #f4f #likeforlikes #like4likes #igers #beautifuldestinations #moody #moodygrams #mountains #fjord #fjordsofnorway #westfjords #fjordnorway
The time our car got stuck in knee deep snow in a snow storm.... Should've really paid attention to the warning signs. @aquilani01 managed to get a pretty cool photo of me and Maz going ahead to scout the place out. #WinterWonderland #Really #Went #All #Out #This #Year #Iceland #Snaefellsjokull #WestFjords #Snow #Storms #Blizzards #Lads #trip #SoBadAtUploads #NoFilter #instapic #Warning

THE UGLIER THE FISH: The fishermen I have met have always said "the uglier the fish the better it tastes" I have never tried Spotted Wolffish (Anarhichas minor), But I have eaten its brother the Atlantic wolffish (Anarhichas lupus) and they are correct. They are large marine fish from a family that was given the name “Wolffish” because of their powerful canine-like teeth. They use these teeth to feast on lobsters, clams and other shellfish. The lean, pearly white flesh of the wolffish has a firm texture and a mild, sweet flavor, sometimes likened to lobster. This one is lying in a box full of Atlantic Redfish (Sebastes mentella). . . . . . . . . . . #iceland #everydayiceland #igericeland #inspiredbynature #inspiredbyiceland @visitwestfjords #exploretocreate #earthfocus #rsa_outdoors #justgoshoot #charlottesville #canonusa #bolungarvík #sustainablefishing #fishing #visitwestfjords #jj_nature #instaiceland #redfish #freshseafood #commercialfishing #justgoshoot #westfjords #ig_iceland #seafood #seafoodlover #wolffish #atlanticocean #arcticocean #uglyfish #tasty
“We come from the land of the ice and snow” - thinking back to driving down this road with Immigrant Song blasting out - Ah-ah, ah! Ah-ah, ah! 🖤⚡️

The Fortress. I loved this mountain with jagged peaks shrouded in clouds on the road from Hólmavík to Djupavik.

One of the most memorable day from last summer. Being in middle of group of 30 to 40 pilot whales on kayak is amazing and sound like perfect surround system😍 #rockpoolkayaks #lendalpaddles @rockpoolkayaksofficial

One of my favorite roads in Iceland. Just up the road and into the mountains from the formidable Dynjandifoss. I could have stayed and explored up the peaks all day. : : From our campervan trip in the summer of 2018. : : #iceland #exploreiceland #dynjandi #mountain #traveliceland #icelandtravel #westfjords #travel #dronephotography #drone #mountainroads #birdseyeview #unsuitableforcoaches
This was by far my favorite time in Iceland...nothing around us except lavender fields and snow-peaked mountains...and a church to make the scene perfect. . . It’s an experience you will never forget... . . . #iceland #westfjords #lavender #lavenderfields #purple #amazing #love #picturesque #church #noonearound #drone #chilly #mavicpro #travel #travelphotography #2017 #hellisandur #roadtrip #countryside #closeup #car #creepy #unique #livinglife
We spent most of our time in Iceland exploring the Westfjords, and the scenery and lighting there were on just another level. It almost made southern Iceland feel a bit bland when we got back to Reykjavik. I just wish I could have captured it on camera. June 2018
The Westfjords in Iceland are a special region. To describe this region in a few words I would say: Rough, Massive, Endless 🇮🇸
I relitti hanno un fascino tutto particolare, chiunque vede un relitto non reiste alla tentazione di farsi una foto. L'islanda è piena di relitti, alcuni più appariscenti e alcuni meno. I relitti ci dicono che in quella zona il clima e il territorio sono particolarmente difficili. Farsi la foto con i relitti forse è un voler testimoniare che si è raggiunto un posto non troppo "facile" e immaginiare la storia di chi su quella nave si è trovato in difficoltà, di chi forse non ce l'ha fatta, di chi invece forse ha avuto modo anche di raccontarlo. Insomma i relitti stimolano la fantasia, anche la tua? . . . . #islanda #igersiceland #traveliceland #inspiredbyiceland #exploreiceland #wheniniceland #iceland #guidetoiceland #islandlove #islandalover #westfjords #westfjordsiceland #liveoutdoors #visiticeland #icelandtravel #icelandtrip #icelandair #icelandicnature #everydayiceland #icelandic #autohome #vscomcam #rooftoptent #passportlife #openmyworld #icelandphoto #maggiolina #stayandwander #passionpassport
