On the road to Hverir.
Hverir is a large geothermal area of mud pools, fumaroles and sticky red dirt. It’s hot, stinky and not unlike being on another planet.
Definitely worth a look if you’re traveling in North Iceland!

Evening, low tide, fog hovering offshore, we could hear waves breaking on the sand bars beyond the harbor. It felt so special, so different. Maybe because it was Iceland???

Also known as “glacier lagoon”, Jökulsárlón is another example of Iceland’s dramatic landscape!
Just off the Ring Road, it’s a popular tourist stop!

Beautiful beaches, green farms and fields and glaciers too! We spent half a day hiking on Fjallsjökull Glacier. Fjallsjökull is small part of a huge glacial system in Vatnajökull National Park in Southeast Iceland.
Alfred, our guide was knowledgeable, low key and had a dry sense of humor. Here he is pointing out fun facts about glaciers!
Alfred, striking a pose!

Cooper, Olive and Alice on the black sand beach at Vik. The water temperature is like Santa Cruz in the winter.
Just around the corner from Vik is Reynishverfi Beach.
Plenty of smooth, flat, round rocks for skipping!

After a day of rainy travel this is the scene that greeted us the next morning.
A country road winding it’s way to the North Atlantic. Iceland is New Zealand on steroids!
Icelandic horses (don’t call them ponies) are a breed developed in Iceland from ponies brought by Norse settlers in the 9th and 10th centuries.

I was out at the river mouth a couple of evenings ago. There was fog and golden light.
The beach scene was pretty quiet for summer in Santa Cruz.
The mood was good, people were snapping selfies, it was fun to be there!

Found this one in one of my storage boxes! Hawaii, Summer, 1994. I made this photo with an Olympus Pen F, half frame camera and Tri-X black and white film. The print was hand colored using Marshall’s pencils and paints. If you want to see it bigger just click on the image.
