Posted before but had another look at it.... I like it better now. This is in south-central Iceland, taken on the way back to the airport.

Amazing landscape there, looks like every rock is covered in rich green velvet.

Thanks... that green "velvet" grows all over the island wherever there is a lava flow exposed. There's also a beige "velvet" that grows in other areas. It seems to prefer certain types of lava. You can see the beige covering one flow, and the green another.

Thanks! I applied some HDR in the first to bring out the texture in the sky, but then tried again without HDR.

Thanks and glad you liked it. It was awesome to be there. I'm not Icelandic (I'm a native Californian), was just visiting for a week or two. It's just an amazing place and anyone who likes photography should make a pilgrimage there at least once!
