Grænihryggur Revisited

Wonderland.

Crisp, cold air, a fresh dusting of snow, and overcast conditions imbued the south-central Icelandic Highlands with a dreamlike quality on this morning last week. There’s a Sanskrit word – adbhuta – for the feeling of wonder and awe these scenes inspire. A short video follows the stills.

Grænihryggur is Icelandic for ‘Green Ridge’ – Grænn (= green) and hryggur (= spine/ridge).
