    A agree. And a lovely set of images. I love the muted palette in the last.

    What a stunning set of pictures! Vestrahorn is particularly appealing to me. The tones in the waterfall image are what I imagine Icelandic tones to be when I think of Iceland. (<--What a nonsense statement,...but I stand by it!) And the last one, of the church and the big sky, is gorgeous.

    Have you become a drone pilot, Beth?

    Great set Beth, especially Vestrahorn. They show why Iceland has become so popular with photographers.

    i wouldn't know if it were icy. half of the trip was so foggy we couldn't see the road, much less the ice. still, very pretty and very much worth visiting.

    thanks. the muted colors go well with the icelandic scenery.

    i know what you mean, there's a certain look to photos from iceland. i always figured everyone processed images to look a certain way, but the colors really are muted in certain light. the black soil has a lot to do with it.

    had to get the drone pilot certification for work, figured i might as well make the most of it and picked up a mavic 2 pro. flying in an airplane with that thing is a hassle.

    thanks milan. the vestrahorn photos almost didn't happen. it was really foggy that day so i almost skipped it since we had to pay to get in. but i guess the sea breeze kept the peninsula clear.

    thanks dave.
