Fish Out the Window…
If you’ve done a lot of fishing, maybe you know this trick. If you flip the fish upside down, it goes totally inert and just kind of stares off into space. It’s such an unusual position for that creature, that it just gets wonderfully confused. Anyway, I was thinking about this the other day as I was staring out of an airplane window. This is the same feeling I have at those times…
Daily Photo – The Old Shed (and Iceland on my mind!)
For this next week, I’m going to do something a little different. I’ll keep up the tradition of a NEW photo every day. But I’ll also throw in a grouping of my favorites from that particular location. We’ve recently grown to half a million pageviews per month in the past year or so, and I know there are many newcomers who might have missed some of the most unique spots in the world. I’m happy to reshare some of these favorites while still showing the new stuff!
This first shot below is from one of the fjords in the far Northwest of Iceland. It was a long and desolate morning when I arrived here. I had been driving all night, after the 2 AM sunrise, weaving back and forth on dirt roads up and down fjords. Little farmhouses are scattered here and there — many of them abandoned. I decided to get out and stretch my legs (and my tripod legs!) to grab this one.
And now, some of my favorites from Iceland. I’ve gone there for many summers and winters. I look forward to another long, lonely, and wonderful week there this summer around the solstice.
