yatpay took this to demonstrate the risks of integer overflows in camera UIs.

The area around our hotel. It was this bright and this cloudy regardless of the time of day.
id: 52322

View from our tour van.

This is what the landscape looks like forever in every direction. It's like a barely-terraformed Mars.

Continental divide. Very touristy.
id: 52326
Incredible view, though.
id: 52327
This boardwalk is great because the rocks are sharp and slippery.
id: 52328
Geyser water; it comes out at 100C, so even here downstream it's extremely hot.
id: 52329
I love these foggy alien landscapes.
id: 52330
Surprisingly, the path and the boiling water are not very far apart.

yatpay waiting to catch the geyser erupt.

This pool was constantly steaming and fogging up the camera. Getting this shot required a lot of patience, just the right wind direction, and luck.
id: 52333
Such a cool color!
id: 52334
Meanwhile, over in the boiling pools of doom...
id: 52335
This is why yatpay has no fingerprints any more.
id: 52336
We were slightly ahead of schedule so we got to visit the tiny horses!
id: 52337
Nobody doesn't love the tiny horses.
id: 52338
Like I said, this is the landscape everywhere, forever in every direction. This path leads to Gullfoss, a huge waterfall!
id: 52339
Gullfoss! I went all the way down to the lower area; it was worth the hike.
id: 52340
The river disappears into a super pretty ravine; this is one of the places you can't easily capture in pictures.
id: 52341
yatpay demonstrates proper technique.
id: 52342
This volcano is also a lake! A lakeano! I went all the way down to the viewing area at the surface.
id: 52343
Nearby cinder cones that aren't lakes.
id: 52344
The view from the lake; you can also walk all the way around the ridge.
id: 52345
The walk around the ridge; yatpay is taking it all in.
id: 52346
Hooray! Iceland!
id: 52347
A little stripmall we stopped at.
id: 52348
This is Skogafoss, one of the largest Fosses in Iceland. Nobody has built a larger Foss since. Nobody knows what a Foss is.
id: 52349
At this distance you still get wet pretty quickly; the camera doesn't show just how much moisture is in the air.
id: 52350
id: 52351
The waterfall distracts people from the rest of the incredible scenery.
id: 52352
I waited to get this shot of the paraglider landing.
id: 52353
This is Reynisfjara, a famous black sand beach with huge hexagonal basalt columns just like Giant's Causeway in Northern Ireland has.
id: 52354
Big glacier! It's much bigger in person.
id: 52355
I tried to get shots of yatpay since there aren't many mirrors in most of his pictures.
id: 52356
Tour Guide: Don't go too far! Don't go down to the water! yatpay: Okay, I'm going to go past the barrier and touch the water. (JP note: it was a small sign, not a barrier!)
id: 52357
I bet it was worth it, though.
id: 52358
I'm pretty sure this is one frame in a rapid-fire sequence of yatpay walking past me.
id: 52359
This is Seljalandsfoss. I stood under it and got so wet that my phone wouldn't turn on.
id: 52360
yatpay took this photo to prove how cool he is.
id: 52361
It's okay to zone out after a long day, even if it's during a "vacation"!
id: 52362
This little convenience store was several meals. It was actually very good food!
id: 52363
yatpay took this photo to show a new battle scar. (Drying out water that got under the dial and made it malfunction)
id: 52364
yatpay took this to demonstrate proper technique for drying off a very wet camera.
