I've seen another world. Sometimes i think it was just my imagination.
Iceland suffered from the longest winter since 30 years in 2013 and when i arrived there in May most of the usually green landscape was still full of oranges and yellows. Nevertheless the beautiful waterfalls of Iceland acted as a herald of spring, providing shelter from wind and a warmer climate and from there on the rich greens were taking back the countryside. This is the rebirth of icelands flora after a cold and long winter and you can clearly see the progression of colors to the horizon where it is still mostly dead grass and moss.

The twin peaks of Agulles d'Amitges reflect in the Estany Gran d'Amitges in the Parc Nacional d'AigŁestortes i Estany de Sant Maurici during one of the most spectacular sunrises I have ever witnessed in an alpine environment. Thick fog was pushing over the crest of Pic de Bassiero towards the east, when all erupted in the most amazing symphony of oranges and reds. The light show only lasted for a very brief period before the clouds took over and shut the light down. The water was perfectly still that morning, so the deep azure water reflected the scene perfectly and I couldn't have wished for more stunning conditions.
A picturesque sunrise above the Alps with view of the Grat Mountain between Diepen and Rophaien. The grass on the mountain slopes appears very soft in the morning light. The contrast between light and shadow accentuates the curved slopes of the Grat very nicely.
