It was the same when I was there - two days clagged in and two days perfectly clear.
I don't have a big range of overseas photos but will try this one in Nepal.

They were about the only lakes I had heard of around there.
But it took awhile to find a similar shot of the first lake.

This prominence does not reach to the other side of the bay, but there is something similar over there inching its way towards us.

Hvítserkur is it. Worth the diversion off the Hwy and short walk- provided he's asleep.
