Young Norwegian Bathers, Blue Lagoon, Iceland

This is a detail shot of the expansive Blue Lagoon that lies just on the outskirts of greater Reykjavik, Iceland. This part of the lagoon is close to the showers / changing rooms and the cafeteria and is often where the youth tend to congregate -- while the discerning adults tend to wander further away into the vast and peaceful centers of the lake for some tranquility. The normally florescent-blue water had gone a bright milky green due to recent rain and plenty of photosynthesis sustaining sunlight. It was incredible to be immersed in such hot and relaxing water -- it was just above freezing point in the air outside but averages about 102 degrees fahrenheit inside. stay tuned -- tomorrow's pic has a more expansive view and gives a better idea of how large this lake (this chain of natural lakes) really is.
