Iceland January 2017

It’s all I can do not to bore the pants off of everyone by talking about this trip: If you had told me that I would ever venture up towards the Arctic Circle for vacation — in January no less — I would have called you crazy. Life is nothing if not surprising, however, and Iceland, particularly in winter, is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been. I’ve never seen a place where the landscape changes so drastically from one mile to the next. Black sand beaches, snow-capped mountains, moss-covered lava rocks that look like so many green brains, sky-blue glaciers that hug the mountains and are so much more dramatic than I was able to capture with my camera…we had to stop the car over and over just to stand there and take it all in. I will never forget the feeling of crossing the bridge into Jökulsárlón and seeing these tremendous blue icebergs rise up in front of us, or the joy of drinking ice-cold Icelandic Beer in a natural hot spring while snow fell on our faces.

I could never be a travel writer, as all I want to say is awesome this and beautiful that, and I’m certainly not much of a landscape photographer as you can see by these well-intentioned but sadly less than stellar efforts (although I do think I featured the fantastic bangs on all the horses quite well, no?), so you’ll all just have to go and check it out for yourselves. Please invite me, ok? I can show you where to go 😉

Photos were taken with a combination of Stacy’s iPhone 7, my iPhone 6, and a Canon 5D Mark III. Enjoy!
