Iceland Part 3


Nail in fencepost securing barbed wire.

I hadn’t taken photographs for ten years and I wasn’t yet into birds. So I focused the lens of a borrowed camera (thanks Mike and Karen) on the things I wanted to remember, no matter how small or seemingly mundane. The images became a visual diary.


A group of sheep wandering in a landscape that easily dwarfs any creature that sets foot upon it. Epic.


Knot in dead branch.


Earlier, when I first arrived in Reykjavik, I took a walk. The tide was out.

  3. Beautiful – I remember the first time I flew to Europe and had a layover in Iceland. I was amazed that Greeland was white and Iceland green (in June).

  10. I wish I were the herder of those sheep…and an alchemist, why not?
