Blue lagoon, Iceland

Kodak Portra 400//Hasselblad 500 CM

Due to equal parts exhaustion, wonder, and not knowing where to go next, I ended up spending over 7 hours in the lagoon.  Every time I told myself I'd leave in an hour, I'd look up at the huge clock moments later to find that more than an hour had passed in a dreamy haze of floating around watching bodies and silica mud coated faces take shape and then disappear again into the steam.  Subsisting on skyr smoothies and glacial water, I probably could have stayed forever, but I finally found the motivation I needed during a conversation with two Canadians and a German when I agreed to give them all a ride back to Reykjavík in exchange for dinner and drinks, given we could find my car in the staff parking lot.
