Great shot

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

Re: Great shot

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!

Looks like you had a grey day there too.

Re: Funny

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?

Re: Funny

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.

Re: Funny

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.

I voted on Brian's

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!

Re: I voted on Brian's

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 don't know how

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

Re: I don't know how

incredible eh? I loved this place and wished I could have spent more time there. There is a fabulous hut to hut 4 day trek - hotspring soaking every night!
