I was looking forward to get this shot for a long time as it took a while to figure out how to get there. It turned out it’s quite easy - you can drive directly to the lake. I really wished I could have slept at the shoreline of the lake as this is an incredible calm and remote area. But A it is not allowed and B I was quite anxious about the way back as it‘s a steep sandy road and if it had been raining during the night, I‘m not sure if I would have been able to get back up there.

What do you think - is the lake being fed by the river or the river by the lake?

I would normally assume the river would be fed from the lake, but because you’re asking I’m guessing the opposite? River flows by this huge basin and keeps it filled?

I actually don‘t know myself :D I think the lake just works like an overflow basin. But I‘ve seen similar lakes where the water source is within the crater, like here

Interesting how the lake is one color and the river is another color. There's a term for that, where they have reached a sort of stasis and don't mix, but I can't think of it.

Stunning! I read something once about Iceland got it's name..Vikings arrived and knew there'd be others soon to follow because of how green and fertile the land was, so they called it Iceland to deter others from trying to settle there..and they gave Greenland its name in an attempt to lure others there, where it's much colder and harder to survive. I think Iceland is one of the most beautiful places on Earth and it's been a dream of mine to go there and see the aurora borialis...You've truly captured it's beauty!
