The red sands of Rauðasandur are really an unexpected vision, across an alarmingly steep mountain trail in the Westfjörds.

This nicely framed shot really captures the smallness of the boat and the vastness of the Ísafjörður mountains.

Wow, of all the hundreds of geyser pics taken every day, and the scores of them tagged #GVpics, here’s one that’s actually really great! But uh please don’t take this as encouragement for more geysir pix, we are fully geysered up over here.

So apparently the top of Snæfellsnes looks like an exploding ice-cloud. Who knew? I didn’t. But now I wanna go there. For these glorious shots, this week’s winners are @candiicejae and dani_padib. Your goodie bag will be on the way soon!
