In Iceland, not fishing... almost

I'm currently traveling in Iceland with my family and thought I'd share a few pics with you.

I'm not here to fish, but my good friend Nils who lives here, managed to get me out for a day on the stream Varmá (yes, it does mean the warm stream), where I managed to cast a bit for some late season sea trout. And it was late season indeed, being the last day that the stream was open for fishing.
We had one rod on the stream and took turns, but my legs didn't offer me much time fishing, so it was Nils who did the far majority of the fishing while I shot some pictures and just had a nice time.
October is out of season one Iceland: fishing season as well as tourist season, and we have just been driving around in a 4WD looking at the beautiful nature. Below you see a handful of my shots from the trip.
