Into Rohan by Dee-T Into Rohan by Dee-T
Alftavatn
Iceland

This scene is what greets the hiker walking on the Laugavegur trail's 2nd day. After the first day of walking through fumaroles and rhyolite mountains, passing one ridge after another, this final one leads to one of the most incredible scenes I can remember. It's cliche to say that it reminds me of Rohan, but I can't think of a more suitable place other than perhaps in New Zealand where the movies were actually filmed. This pano suffers from quite a few imperfections regarding lens flare but for the purpose of sharing a grand scene, I think that is less important. I hope this image gives you at least some sense of the wonder Marianne and I did as we sat there and enjoyed our lunch break before descending to the river crossing before reaching Alftavatn hut (at the lake visible in the scene)

You lucky guy. I hiked the trail too and it rained all the time. Really all the time, it didn't stop one minute.
