Last of Iceland

Last of Iceland

Hraunfossar Hraunfossar was one of the most surprising stops. It’s off the road quite a bit but worth stopping. It’s an area that is kind of desolate but when you get to the waterfalls you are blown away. The color of the water is amazing. The color is from the water...
Puffins, Whales & Waterfalls

Puffins, Whales & Waterfalls

I got a little overwhelmed in editing my photos of Iceland. When you go to a place like Iceland, you are going to take a lot of photos but it’s always good to remember that you are going to have to go through and edit all those photos! Puffins and Whales One of the...

Geyers, Waterfalls, Horses and More Iceland

Iceland Travel Notes All the shots in this post were taken in one day. It’s amazing how fast the landscape and weather change in Iceland. It really makes a challenge for photographers. I loved the texture on this mountainside. Strokkur Geyser Stokkur is one of...
Seljalandsfoss Area

Seljalandsfoss Area

Driving the Ring Road After leaving the airport I headed straight to 1. I did not want to spend much time in Reykjavik since I knew I would be there for a few days at the end of the trip. The first day of the trip was very wet. The kind of wet you could stand outside...
Námafjall Geothermal Area

Námafjall Geothermal Area

Iceland Recently, I spent eight days in Iceland driving the Ring Road. I spent many miles zig-zagging through the whole country. I’ve wanted to go to Iceland for many years. I wanted to see this wild desolate place for myself. Iceland did not disappoint. Around...
Ketchikan & the Misty Fjords

Ketchikan & the Misty Fjords

On the last full day in Alaska, I visited the city of Ketchikan. I was not in the actual town very long – just long enough to walk around and look at the shops. Most of my time was spent on a boat headed out to the Misty Fjords. It was a lovely day and great...
Glacier Bay National Park

Glacier Bay National Park

Another favorite part of my Alaska trip was Glacier Bay National Park. When we first entered Glacier Bay I was disappointed – it was foggy and drizzly. The fog was so thick that it was like we were sailing through clouds. As we got further into the park I...
Skagway and the White Pass Train

Skagway and the White Pass Train

Out of all the trips in Alaska, Skagway was one of my favorites. The little town tucked away in the inside passage – surrounded by beauty. The town itself is cute but still has a ton of jewelry stores (seriously what is it with these towns and jewelry stores?)...
Juneau – The rainy and foggy day in Alaska

Juneau – The rainy and foggy day in Alaska

Juneau – When plans change My first stop in Alaska was Juneau. It was raining/snowing and so foggy that you could not even see the shore – even though I knew it was right beside us. It was miserably cold and I found out that my 6 hour kayak trip was...
Highlights of Alaska

Highlights of Alaska

I’ve been back from Alaska for a few days and starting to finally get my land legs underneath me.  I will be editing Alaska photos for probably the rest of my life. I did not realize how many panos and bracketed photos I took – which means for one image...
