This place is one of the most beautiful and serene places I have ever visited.  We were in Iceland during the summer and happened on this stunning view of Þingvallavatn on our first day out of Reykjavik to do the Golden Circle sights (Gullfoss, Geysir, Þingvellir).  I was driving at about 15-20 mph while Sis filmed the lake.  The vastness of the sky, stillness of the surface, clarity of the water, and symmetry of the horizon was out of this world.

As if to prevent people from spoiling the serenity of the area, this roadside driving map was quite effective.  The fact that the name of the lake is unpronounceable and starts with a non-latin alphabet helps keep it a secret!  That stretch of the lake was filmed from Route 360 after we turned from Route 435.  See the actual route plotted on my google map.
