Waterfalls and glaciers and icebergs and more hot springs! And more rain...but the morning I did a boat our of the glacier lagoon, the sun appeared!
The glaciers and icebergs were one of my favorite things in Iceland - there's a huge icecap here (largest in Europe, and outside of the polar regions) called Vatnajokull. It has tons of glacier "arms" that reach down towards the ocean - they're huge, stunning, and often end in "lagoons" with icebergs.
In new things learned about icebergs, they are constantly moving/shifting/flipping. If the ice has recently been underwater, it appears blue; if it's been above water for awhile, it gets whiter. Anything black/brown is sediment it picked up as part of the glacier. This site won't let me post videos, but a few big ones flipped while I was watching, it was impressive.
