The Alien Pools – Stuck in Customs

The Alien Pools

Daily Photo – The Alien Pools

If you have ever seen this area of Southern Iceland, then you can attest to these amazing colors! These are totally accurate…. and I would find it hard to believe had I not seen it first-hand. It was my first time in this area in the summer when I took this, after a previous visit in more arctic conditions. Do you see those strange rocks? Well, some of what you are seeing is rocks and the rest is a very unusual moss. It’s a tan-green color. It’s extremely fuzzy/spongy and makes the whole place just seem unworldly. That, combined with the extra-blue water, made for a scene that was just shockingly awesome.
