Everybody loves a day at the beach, right? Well, a beach is not always the same as a beach. Today is #FriFotos and SAND is the theme, so I decided to pick a few pictures of sand and beaches in Iceland to share with you :)
Here's what a day at the beach looks like in Iceland:
The sand is black and the sea is frozen. No swimming on this beach, my friend. At least not in February :)
A Viking ship waiting outside a beach in the Westfjords of Iceland.
The Icelandic "Baywatch" to the rescue!
Since I was a kid I've heard the 1.000 year old legend about the Viking that was supposed to be buried here in the sand bank by the beach. It wasn't until 4 years ago that someone took a look - and found a Viking chief buried in his ship with his Viking sword!
The famous Reynisdrangar seen from the black beach in Vik, South Iceland!
I just love this place. Again, this is Arnarfjordur in the Westfjords. The view is from the old farm Bakki and inwards the fjord over the golden beach.
