BLW in Iceland

Looking back on the year after I turned 30 from the year before I turn 40. I was, and am, still in love with Iceland. Here are more images from the series.

This was the view from the backyard of Klaustrid. Such an epic, windswept vista. The valley to the right leads to the Vatnajokull Glacier. I walked for hours through these fields.

Those hours often found me striding through the hills when night fell. I’d eventually lose my nerve beat a hasty retreat to the warmth and security of the house. In those hours I might only ever see one person… sometimes no one. It felt vast.

One of the few companions met along the trail, along with the wandering sheep and beautiful and well composed horses.

  5. The blue photo is eery and entrancing. Your description made me want to be there myself, walking in that surreal light, in the jarring aloneness. Beautiful.

  6. I can totally understand your love affair. It’s your writing about your feelings being there that turn that first picture of the windswept, desolate-looking land into a grand vista allowing you to feel alive and part of the earth, too.

    Beautiful images! I hope you have read one of my favorite books, Independent People, by Haldor Laxness, Icelandic winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature.
