This is a second photo from the Blue Lagoon in Iceland. Nowadays there are tourists from all over the World visiting Iceland. Here some Asian tourists helped to add some female beauty as well as some strong colours to the scene. My country fellowman Gert in his comment to my previous photo said it looked more like the Grey Lagoon than the Blue Lagoon. An advantage and a disadvantage when visiting Iceland is the quickly changing weather. Here all of a sudden the weather is a little bit better and which immediately means that the water it is bit more blue.

The blue colour of the water makes the place a lot more attractive. On this picture the Blue Lagoon is certainly worthy of the name.
The picture is well composed and has a good depth.
This is quite an amazing natural phenomenon.
Best regards, Paul

Hello Ulf - Even though I see this was taken in June, the weather looks cold and windy and there is steam rising from the water! Brrrrr... A lovely look at a place that fascinates and you are right, the girls make a strong and colourful contrast to the shot. Warm regards Rosemary

I like this view of both the lagoon and some tourists. We can clearly see the steam rising up. I wonder how cold the people must be when they finally get out of the water! The milky blue color is nice, and it goes well with the blue towels.

Good morning Ulf,
The oriental ladies-tourists seem to enjoy the unique hot-springs in the famous Blue-Lagoon. Notable wind blows, and vapor arise from the water, indicate notably the summer there is like our winter...
Fine taken the place on camera.
Have a nice weekend,

Det ser ju helt klart ut att vara betydligt angenämare i vattnet än i luften. Men de här flickorna bidrar ju iallafall med klara och distinkta färger till bilden. Och här ser det ju inte lika soligt ut som i den förra bilden.

très belle photo vivante de cet endroit que je visiterai peut-être lors de mon voyage court en Islande en juillet prochain. Cela me donne déjà l'envie d'y aller.
Ce paysage semble issu d'une autre planète.
C'est net et bien cadré.
