Photographer's Note

Spread your wings and let the world lift you high.

Right by the Geysers in the Haukadalur valley of South/West Iceland, one can climb up high, to the top of a hill and marvel at the space and freedom Iceland has to offer.

From there, one can look at people flocking to watch the Strokkur perform faithfully every 5 to 10 minutes, and hope to catch a sight of the Geysir erupting to its famous heights.
For years the Geysir stopped erupting altogether, and the urban myth tells that it was thanks to washing powder that they got it going again... whether that is true remains to be confirmed. The story was told to us by a local... and then confirmed by another. Perhaps something to tell tourists? Or perhaps an inside story? Who will ever know?

The wind was blowing hard yet softly at this mountain top, and the evening sun was already bathing the area in its golden light. As one stood there at the top, there was nothing in front, only space and wind, and in the distance these high volcanoes, greeting whomever dared to peak far enough to see them.

Traveling to Iceland was not just traveling to another country.
For me, it was experiencing Life in a different dimension. Feeling the everyday movements from a new perspective. Breathing in a new freshness and Peace.
With this picture, I hope to transmit some of those feelings to whomever might be watching.
Thanks for passing by :)

An advance Thank You to those amongst you who take the time to criticize and/or leave a comment!
