Love the color...I wonder if the picture would be as striking with a bright blue background?

Thanks. I think blue in this area is a hard colour to come by but I would have loved to have seen a day like that!

It almost looks identical!! After I posted it I was looking at the site yours is in and thought it was the same photo. I guess it is one of those places everyone has to get the same shot and in Iceland I think the majority of the days are grey. Oh well, still love to go back - et tu?

Oh very much so. I plan on going back in a year or two. I spent two weeks there but feel like I only saw about half of it. Plus I need to get back and finish up Hvannadalshnukur. A very magical country (although I wouldn't plan on being there anytime during the winter). ;- )

Don't know if you made it there but the north and east coast are the sunnier spots. If you have not been there, I'd recommend Akureyri up north.

Was on the north coast - Akureyri is beautiful - but didn't have much time to spend there - would love to explore some of the mountains there and you are right - sunnier too - did get to Myvatn area etc. We were there a month and only really touched a part of it. Most of the time was West coast and south. So many places, so little time. The interior would be pretty cool to explore as well.

photo, so figured I should
vote on yours. Are you still
in UT? When you were in
Iceland, do you remember seeing
Icelandic poppies?? What elevation
were they growing at? We have the
lower-elevation poppy here in AZ.
Guess they grow as high as 5,000'.
You must really get around to
fasinating places. Have you been
to the Philippines? I need to post
some orchid photos, as soon as I
get an ID on them. Take care!

Nope, back home for awhile. The poppies were there and beautiful. They were not that much higher than sealevel but that is also around 64+ degrees N. I have never been to the Philippines...yet. Thanks for the vote, even tho they are pretty much the same. LOL

I missed this photo. Amazing colors on this volcano, and surounding rocks.
