Photo taken somewhere south in Iceland driving southeast along the coastline which is dotted with glaciers. I’m not sure if it is Frankenstorm Sandy that stirred me towards this photo tonight or the grayness of the late November sky. Nevertheless it gravitated towards me and pulled at me to use it. I’m hoping that this storm isn’t as damaging as they predict. Hope all is well and everyone is safe.
How could I ever forget my first glacial hike in Iceland? The photos show the brilliant aquamarine fissures within the ice. Some of the carvings were a work of art in themselves. The texture of ice is truly awe-inspiring and beautiful. This post is written in response to Ailsa’s (from Where’s my Backpack) Weekly Travel Theme: Texture. To feel more texture posts, click here. Hope you enjoyed the journey!
Before I start with my entries for each color, I wanted to post one of my most favorite colorful pictures in my collection: The boats of Pokhara. After completely half of the Annapurna Trek in Nepal, we came upon lovely, picturesque Pokhara, perhaps the most beautiful towns in all of Nepal. There I saw these brightly colored boats in Pokhara Lake with the nightly Himalayas reflecting off the waters. It took my breath away. “Capture the Colours”: Blue I […]

Photo taken in Vik, Iceland. There is nothing more majestic than a horse. I loved these horses that we passed by during a hike in Vik, Iceland. They seemed to have a great life, grazing on the lush, evergreen grass.
Greetings from Iceland…wish you were here! Photo taken in southern Iceland, of Seljalandsfoss, one of the most famous waterfalls of Iceland. Summer 2008. I had to put another Iceland photo on this morning. Again, I played around a bit with the color and I like how this one turned out. It shows just how green the grass is in Iceland. So brilliant it hurts your eyes. I also like the fact that there are people walking besides the waterfall. It […]
Greetings from Iceland…wish you were here! Photo taken in 2008 during drive southward somewhere in Iceland. I am having way too much fun with Snapseed! I even put it on my MAC today to make it easier to work with older pictures. I love how I can play around with them and make the colors even more dramatic. Iceland is up there as one of the loveliest places on earth that I thoroughly enjoyed and hope to return to. It […]
Greetings from Iceland…wish you were here! Photo taken in during my day hike in The Myrdalsjökull Glacier, which is the fourth largest glacier in Iceland and is located about 96 miles southeast of Reykjavik. Iceland by far is still one of my most favorite places I’ve ever been. The contrasts between white, green, black and blue are astounding. I chose this photo today from one of my only posts to ever get Freshly Pressed, Lost in Iceland. I still think the photos […]
Greetings from Iceland….wish you were here! Photo taken driving southeast in Iceland along the coast. Iceland will always captivate me. It is one of those unique places where every step of the way, is a beautiful photo. Here is just a glimpse of Iceland’s incredible beauty. We were driving towards Vik and out of nowhere started seeing glacial tongues jetting down towards the verdant, fertile land. I love the contrast of colors! The bright green, dark black of the lava […]
Greetings from Iceland…wish you were here! Photo taken en route to Vik, Iceland in the summer of 2008. I love this photo! It was the only shot I took of this waterfall with my little point and click camera but I think it turned out stunning! The verdant green grass and the milky water spraying as it crashes to the ground, gives me chills. Iceland is a place of magic and dreams. I love it and it is often unvisited. […]
