Stuck In Iceland

    Newer Older

    I'm not one of those Flickr self-portrait kinda dudes, but I went ahead and made one because I found sort of a cool place. Also, my sister likes it when I post pictures of myself. Bianca, you can see I am wearing inappropriate shoes for the snow in Iceland. If I was in the middle of a 10K in Texas, those Nike paper-thin shoes would come in handy.

    This is out in the wiles, and I mean the wiles, of Iceland. I have no idea why anyone built this building here in the middle of nowhere, but they did, and it appeared to conform to the rule of thirds, so I could not resist.

    This is in the most seismically active area of Iceland, where the Eurasian plate separates from the North American plate. In the distance, you can see the mid-Atlantic ridge.

      Great shot! I love the self portrait part, and the landscape off on the right is beautiful as well!!! Really well done!

      Muy bueno el HDR. Lo que más me gusta de todo son los relejos de la habitación en el cristal, me recuerdan en cierto modo a Minority Report.

      Nice take on the self-portrait concept! I'm just learning about the rule of thirds. Looks mighty cold but you got an excellent photo out of it.

      What a beautiful shot... a great self portrait. Love that light and those color tones.

      Would be a good addition for the Three Worlds group!

      Very cool building. No one was around when you were there? Did it look like a residence or an office building? I just got done reading an article about Iceland in N. Geographic and they were talking about how desolate it is outside Rekjavik. Surprising this is out there.
