Laki, or Lakagígar (the craters of Laki) is the site of the largest lava outpouring of known times. It is one of the dark, barren parts of Iceland.

Really like this series but favorite is #2 for the S-curve, colors, smoothness, etc.
Nicely seen

Hard to pick a favorite but I will go for the last one. Great shots.

Very nice set. 1 & 2 have a very foreboding look. I like the depth implied by the winding road. Thanks Helen.

I'll also go with the gloomy, foreboding look

All three images have their different merits, Helen, and all three are excellent.
I live near the Oregon Cascades- which are mostly a volcanic mountain range, and it's interesting to note how different our lava flows look compared to these. I mean, they are REALLY different.
Ours are so jagged that you'd cut your feet to ribbons trying to walk barefoot on them.
These look more foot-friendly .
I know there are different kinds of lava- but such a contrast is indeed a bit startling.

Helen,
All three show excellence in composition, using the curve in the road plus the beauty of Iceland.
Thanks,
David

I like them all and can hardly pick a fav. Maybe# 3 but then I go back to the two others and am no longer sure of my choice.

At what time of the year were these taken?

Phil.

Those are very cool Helen. Since I'm attracted to lonely and barren landscapes I prefer them in the order you presented. Good job!

Thanks Charlie!
Most of the lava that I have come across in Iceland is not sharp. More bubbly and uneven, with some deep holes in between - which also makes it difficult to walk on.

These were taken in late June. Laki, like most of the interior of Iceland is only accessible in the 3-4 months of the summer and only with a 4x4. You have to ford quite a few rivers to get there.

Gorgeous. I like the color popping in #3, but I think #1 is my favorite overall with the road leading diagonally into the frame. In all of them I love the moody sky; it really adds to the remote, rugged feel of these shots. Nice job!

Thanks everyone for the feedback and the replies! On my dutch language forum there was quite a bit of criticism about the rock in image 2. I made a new version without the rock.
