The road was my conversation. The soothing drone of asphalt contrasting the staccatoed chatter of gravel striking the undercarriage. Always conversations held at a distance, filtered through metal and plastic but brought to life by the vivid imagery rolling slowly to my rear. Ten days of silence on the Ring Road was my transition back to society after spending so much time alone on the Greenlandic tundra. Rarely is the transition home so gradual.
I took this photo as I neared the end of my circumnavigation of Iceland’s Route 1. It captured my feeling that evening, blending the pull of a beautiful landscape with a reminder of friends that were far away.
Walk behind a waterfall, and you’ll be at Seljalandsfoss in southwest Iceland. Nowhere else in the world boasts a similar phenomenon. Just another day on Iceland’s Route 1.
A break from scenes from Iceland… this photo is from last summer in Greenland. Relics of an age-now past, these rugged creatures live in large family groups dominated by a massive bull. Early in spring (May/June) the tundra is brown as it transitions from snow scape to verdant herbivore calving ground.
I made the loop around Iceland in 10 days last September. Over the next few days I’ll be sharing some of my favorite photos and videos from that trip.
This photo is from the southeast coast. Note the volcanic spires rising up out of the beach sands. These are old lava tubes. The lava hardened and the rock around them eroded away.
Finally going through a few pictures I took last September while on my way through Iceland.
There weren’t many tourists around that time of the year. The rain and wind may have scared them off, but the majestic beauty of the place pairs well with solitude. No complaints!
This is Snaefellsnes. Entrance to the center of the earth if you go by Jules Verne’s account.
Last summer I spent a few days watching the edge of Greenland’s ice sheet with the hope of capturing this type of video. It was a challenge to predict precisely where a calving event like this would happen and to have the camera recording before it began. Sometimes there would a period of several hours in between even minor falls. This, fortunately, was the largest one I saw during my time watching the ice.
