I am out of words. These images are so beautiful. Fire and ice frozen and captured for all of us to enjoy and celebrate. Thanks for sharing your great adventure.

Breathtaking!!! These exemplify my idea of Iceland. I wouldn’t think it possible but these even top the Part I. Kudos!

Thanks ‘D’… there was just so much I had to split the post… I hope you have a productive trip there this summer.

WOW!!! Absolutely gorgeous!! I never knew Iceland could be this beautiful. Your images made me add Iceland to my bucket list of places to visit. 🙂

I keep trying to keep up with you now that you are in the mecca of art up north 🙂 Like both of us I just try and keep creating… glad you enjoyed it.

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

Barry soooo happy you like the selfie… just had to include it… really appreciate the comment.

Another great series of photos from a magnificent place. You’ve portrayed its beauty well.

I am soooo very bummed… just saw you went to the Ice Caves… I would have pulled the sled that you and Cindy were on to get to shoot them 🙂
Thanks for the visit Dan.

They were great, especially the last one!

Gorgeous photography, Mike! Those icebergs are way more interesting than the ones in Antarctica.
February 10, 2014 at 3:40 pm
Glad you said that… now I will stop putting my lifes saving away to get there. Those images were non-stop at times!!!

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.

LOL you’re too funny!
Hey Terry… you know me… can’t take yourself to serious 🙂
February 22, 2014 at 10:32 pm
Sorry Rich that was my last post from there… but if it will make things easier I can pop a couple more on the blog to nudge you in the right direction. Had a fantastic time… just do your homework and make many offerings to the weather gods 🙂
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!
February 10, 2014 at 11:16 am
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.
February 22, 2014 at 10:31 pm
such a beautiful country….and you captured it well!
February 10, 2014 at 9:41 am
So much to see Sandy… really glad I had some good weather.
February 22, 2014 at 10:28 pm
I could look at these photos all day! They are simply stunning. I can’t believe you saw a real puffin!! Great stuff!
February 10, 2014 at 9:16 am
Me either… those birds are very elusive… thanks for the visit.
February 22, 2014 at 10:27 pm
I am captivated by these photographs! Stunning!
February 10, 2014 at 9:15 am
Thanks for the comment Maggie.
February 22, 2014 at 10:25 pm
Part 2 is just as stunning as the first. The Jokulsarlon, puffin, and sunset are favorites in this set. Got a kick out of your selfie too. Looking forward to see where your next adventure takes you.

Thanks Cathy… those birds were a pain to shoot… there size (really small) and speed!!!
February 22, 2014 at 10:24 pm
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?

Big thanks for the comment and visit… Marty feel free to share my blog.
