Land of midges

This is Mývatn, in the north, not far from the Krafla volcano. Iceland is studded with areas of geothermal activity. This one is home to vast numbers of wildfowl attracted by the ice-free water. It’s also where some of Iceland’s largest concentrations of midges are found in summer – Mývatn translates as Lake of the Midges.
