    Really amazing! Hard to pick a favorite. I like them all. But, I especially like #5… the colors & textures. And #24… the sky! Nice self portrait too ๐Ÿ™‚

    You’ve succeeded again in making me want to visit a place I have not yet been to.

  14. I’ve kicked around the idea of heading to Iceland and with your first post it went on the short list. Now after seeing these amazing photographs you have created it is on a really short list. If you post again I will probably make a plane reservation now.

  15. Of the 50 countries I’ve been to (so far), Iceland remains among my very favorites. You must have been in a kayak for some of these images, I think–right? What a fantastic opportunity!

    • LOL… well Gary… while I kayak on the still and very small lakes were I live… in Iceland I opted for a small very still 10 man boat. I am still surprised at what I was able to see.

  20. Mike,

    Great, Great stuff. As you probably know, I’m leading my second tour to Iceland in two weeks to photograph the Aurora Borealis. Eric is leading a another tour to Iceland in May. May I distribute your blog to the people that are traveling with me?
