Did you know that this lake does not exist anymore?
The lake “Lónið” below the Gígjökull Glacier (in the middle) was filled up by ash and sediments from the Eyjafjallajökull eruption last year. The crater of Eyjafjallajökull is up in the bright area in the upper middle of the picture. It melted a huge amount of ice that caused massive floods to come pouring down the Gígjökull Glacier washing a large portion of the glacier away and completely filling up the lake with ash. The lake is now just large flat barren wasteland. You will drive through this area on your way to Þórsmörk, one of the nicest places in Iceland. Take the bus unless you are confident enough to drive across large glacier rivers on your modified super jeep.
This is why you can keep visiting Iceland every year. It’ll change between years.
