Last Thurs­day, Morgunblaðið journalist Sig­urður Bogi Sæv­ars­son took these wond­erf­ul aer­ial ima­ges of Ice­land dur­ing his flig­ht from Reykja­vik to the eastern town of Egilsstaðir.

The sky was clear and passengers were treated to wonderful views of the Icelandic landscape – “one after another, like pearls on a necklace,” says Sæv­ars­son.

The flight from Reykjavik to Egilsstaðir is operated by Air Iceland and takes approx. 55 minutes.
