Snow covered Iceland
We are having a wonderful winter in Iceland this year. It’s been snowing more or less all December and this is the result. Every little spec of Iceland is covered in snow. The photo was taken by Nasa’s MODIS satellite. The big lakes don’t seem to be frozen yet, so they are easy to make out. The little one out on the Reykjanes peninsula (lower left hand corner) is Kleifarvatn (E. Cliff Lake), the big one close to Reykjavík is Þingvallavatn (Parliament Fields’ Lake), the one in the bottom middle is Þórisvatn (E. Lake of Þórir) and the long skinny one on the right is Lögurinn (Can’t translate that, but I’ll tell you it’s full of monsters).
Check out previous summer and winter satellite pictures of Iceland to compare.
