Photographer's Note

I chose the title Paradise because thats what it felt like to me when I visited the famous Blue Lagoon.

I'm sure you've all heard about the Blue Lagoon just outside of Reykjavik. This is a Geothermal Spa, where you can soak in the hot waters, about 98-102 degrees, outside in the cold weather and relax :)

This photo here isn't the actual large spa lagoon area where the people are - but at the blue lagoon there are walking trails, similar to hiking trails. These small trails that encompass the Blue Lagoon walk you through the local area and you can see scenes just like this - basically moss covered lava fields with glowing blue water!

Very cool indeed. After walking around the trails taking photo's for about 1 Hour, we then went to the Spa area and spent another couple hours dipping in the hot water - which looks exactly like this bright blue.

It was fun because there we were in the hot bright neon blue water, smoke and steam everywhere, then it began to snow :) And we were not even the least bit cold, it was very hot.

Taking a relaxing Spa soak in Geothermal Mineral Rich waters while its snowing....can't get any better than that in Iceland :)

I'll try to find a photo of the actual spa area and post that as the WS

Cheers
