Alone in Winter, Against the World... (and I am selling my camera on eBay)

    Prev Next

    This is one desolate place.

    It's the southern coast of Iceland where the sea and the wind were absolutely ripping their way past me and the lighthouse. I always imagine what it is like to be inside of one of those lighthouses, all night long through the winter. I can't even envision what that would be like, and after only a short time there in the icy wind, I got the willies and was happy to get out of there.

    Also, for something completely different, my Nikon D3X came in today and I was first on the list for Austin! I stayed up with the guys at work for too long and didn't make it to the store to pick it up! But, this weekend it's on my list for sure! I'm going to be making an eBay listing to sell my amazing Nikon D2Xs, which is still in excellent never-dropped condition. If you are interested in buying the D2Xs from me before the eBay auction even starts (saving me a bit of trouble!), please go right ahead and send me an email with "D2Xs" in the subject. I'm going to include my a Premium Texture Video Tutorial for free as well as a signed print. And if you are in the central Texas area, I'll even be glad to meet you in person for the delivery! :)

      Nice composition. The clouds in the back make the shot.

      Trey: There are many lighthouses along the stormy Norwegian coastline that offer accomodation, and some can even be rented for periods of time if you so wish.

      For starters, check out Kråkenes Fyr by Stadt. This is the stormiest place in Norway, offering great surfing and surely tons of fantastic photo opportunities.
