Die Ringstraße Nr. 1 ist Islands längste Straße und folgt grob dem Küstenlauf, schneidet aber alle großen Halbinseln ab. Sie ist derzeit 1336 km lang und konnte erst 1974 fertiggestellt werden, nachdem die letzten Brücken im Gebiet von Skaftafell gebaut wurden. Heute ist sie bis auf einige wenige Teilstücke über die Berge nach Egilsstaðir und bei Hvalnes asphaltiert, vor einigen Jahren war das nur in der Nähe von Reykjavík der Fall.
Route 1, or the Ring Road was completed in 1974, and is a main road that runs around Iceland and connects all the inhabited parts of the island, with the interior of the island being uninhabited. This paved road is 1,336 km (831 mi) long with one lane in each direction, except near larger towns and cities and in the Hvalfjörður Tunnel (also the site of a toll) where it has more lanes. Many bridges on it, especially in the north and east, are single lane and made of timber and/or steel.
I probably promised you twice that I have finished this series:p
Sorry but I found this version here that suited very well for a mono edit. I croped it a bit too compared to my earlier upload.
I shot this as low as I got on my tripod. I regret that I didnt placed my cam straight onto the ground. With the 14 mm it would have made a great difference I think. I am going back in may so I will try it then.
Also I would like to thank everyone for all the views, faves and comments for the past few days. I have been so much on explore that I am starting to feel I am taking up too much space in here. And today I got my first # 1. Cheers! Sorry for taking all the space:p
I`ll probably have my ban after today:p
Anyway, take care.. See you around!
