It’s hard to resist pulling over next to every enclosure to say hi to the friendly Icelandic horses who dot the landscape on either side of the Ring Road. We met these horses just off the road along the north edge of Mývatn, the large lake in Northern Iceland. Icelandic horses are remarkably adapted to the landscape. They have no problem grazing and playing on the rocky lava fields. The image of the horse below standing on a mound with the ice-capped mountain behind him was just as powerful in real life as it is in the photo.
