Dreamy Valley


That last photo was making me chilly, so I thought I'd re-post one I took this past summer. Its of Svarfaðardalur, just north of Akureyri and only inches from the Arctic Circle (in an atlas that is...in real life its a couple of miles.)

Though by no means complaining about our snappy winter weather, it's nice remember what awaits us come summer...

Have I mentioned that Kiefer Sutherland (who was here last year as you can read on the link,) Quentin Tarantino and RZA are all here for our amazing New Years madness? You've honestly never seen as many fireworks in one place on one night in your life as can be seen here at midnight on the 31st. I'll even take pix from my balcony to prove it.

In the meantime, let this luxurious countryside scene transport you to a perfect Icelandic summertime day...

Your photo makes me sigh with longing - I am already there in my mind :-D

As always, love to hear your tidbits about Iceland. Your previous post was great - NOT that I'm planning any ice climbing soon... LOL We tromped through the lava fields and I was amazed at what we found! A few caves were there out of no where, and if there had not been a van of touring spelunkers parked at the side of the road we would have missed it entirely.

what a beauty! even though it might be somewhat off-topic posting a summer pic at this time of the year, this one is simply so great it couldn't wait until next summer!

Wow. I can't find the words this early in the morning to describe how beautiful that picture is. The more I see of Iceland the more I want to see it first hand. Thanks for sharing.

I have to admit that I was more than shocked to see the richness and quality of this photo when I uploaded it onto my Mac. Since I'm pretty much just a point-and-shooter I have to give total credit to the land itself, with me as humble witness!
