Scenes From Recent Trip On Ring Road In Iceland

What is thought to be a Common Murre stands alone on a small iceberg spotted by Los Alamos Daily Post photographer and videographer Nate Limback during his recent 8-day trip traveling the Ring Road in Iceland. Limback shares his photos of the wildlife, landscapes, waterfalls and icebergs he encountered along the 825 mile road. The Ring Road is the nickname of Route 1, Iceland’s main motorway. Since most of Iceland’s interior is uninhabitable wilderness, this highway only goes around the populated coastal areas. The Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss waterfalls, Dyrhólaey cliffs and Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon are all visible from the Ring Road. Source: www.nordicvisitor.com. Photo by Nate Limback/ladailypost.com

An Atlantic Puffin stands nonchalantly with a beak full of fish seen recently from the Ring Road in Iceland. The best time to find Atlantic Puffins is during the breeding season. From late April through August they come ashore to nest on islands—the rest of the year they’re far out at sea. Iceland is home to about half the global population. Source: www.allaboutbirds.org.
