Rainbow Country

The northern lights get all the press, but as we found on our trip to Iceland earlier this year, rainbows are also surprisingly common.

I think it is the changeable weather, coupled with the low angle of the sun, that is responsible for this profusion of rainbows. On our second day in Reykjavík, we saw a glorious rainbow over the Faxaflói bay.

And those are just the ones in the sky. Then there is the sculpture which greets you on arrival at Keflavík Airport.

And the many graffiti rainbows on the walls of Reykjavík.

And finally, my favourite: a poster in Café Babalú, a wonderful little coffee-shop in Reykjavík.
