Unexpectedly, I was given an opportunity to travel to Sweden in September together with some family and friends. After a week of frantic running around trying to get prepared, I found myself at the Denver Airport looking at an impression of snow-capped peaks nestled among the steel and glass of the buildings. SELP 1650 @50mm f/8 I collapsed into my seat with the trusty NEX-6 with its petite kit lens, 3 OM lenses (28 f/2.8, 50 f/1.4, and 135 f/2.8), and Miss Bronica (my medium format film camera) along for the ride. First stop--an excruciatingly brief layover in Iceland. After spending the first day prowling around Reijkavik (the Harp concert hall and Hallgrim church are really interesting from an architectural standpoint), we did a Golden Circle mini-bus tour the next day. Given the enormous popularity of this tour and that you probably have seen enough geyser and waterfall pictures, I thought I share some other images from this trip. The other Iceland. There was something strange and almost alien in the landscapes. The Cave of the Mountain King SELP 1650 @ 16mm f/8 23.7% of Icelands trees are visible in this picture (j/k!) OM 28 Taken from the rift valley at Tingvellir, the rock wall in the background is the eastern edge of the North American tectonic plate. The flat moss-covered rock in the foreground apparently is the Law Rock where the prevailing laws were recited to the vikings gathered below during parliamentary gatherings. Law Rock OM 50 In route to Geysir, I somehow managed to grab this shot with the OM50 During an emergency pit stop to pet the friendly and feisty Icelandic horses (don't call them ponies, they get insulted), I felt that the rendering of the OM50 matched the character of the horses. The hills behind Geysir were more interesting to me than the spouting water OM 135 OM 50 or OM 28 The Gullfoss waterfall didn't disappoint anyone as it greeted us with a beautiful rainbow. The subsequent soak in the Secret Lagoon felt pretty darn great after all the running around. Not quite satisfied when we returned to the hotel, we headed up to the observation deck of the The Pearl to catch the sunset. The Pearl at Sunset OM 50 I really enjoyed my all to brief visit in Iceland and would love to go back someday. Thanks for stopping by!
