The Long Curvy Road Around Iceland

New HDR Video Tutorial in 24 Hours!

The old video tutorial has been taken down, and will never be available again – but don’t lament! The new one will officially launch tomorrow and I think you’ll love it… If you already had the DVD and wondered about the new thing, here’s a nice quote for you:

“I was initially uncertain as to whether to ‘attend’ this webinar. I had purchased Treys’ DVD and wondered why I should spend more money on this. I must say that I enjoyed the webinars even more than the DVD’s & was surprised in how much I learned. Thanks again for an excellent presentation. I did & will continue to enjoy and learn. It was money well spent!!!’ - Jon Barney, Virginia

Daily Photo – The Long Curvy Road Around Iceland

I’m packing now for another summer solstice at 66 degrees north. It’ll be a great one!

I’m also trying out some new photo bags… people send me stuff to try out all the time. Hehe… I make it clear to all of them that I only review and recommend stuff that I actually use… if I don’t like it, I won’t rip on it, I just won’t mention it. If it turns out to be good, I’ll give it a big thumbs up and tell you all about it… so I am about to go through the big ceremonial process of moving all my stuff from one bag to another… you know that process. It’s actually kind of fun, to tell you the truth… Also, it’s down there in my ethics statement. I only review and recommend stuff I actually use rather than giving you 20 reviews a week. I think that keeps it simple, and also, you aren’t forced to read a bunch of reviews that hem and haw about this and that…

And when I get to Iceland, I’ll be up on this wonderful road again… this gentle curving road that circumnavigates the island… sleeping days and staying up through the white nights… I can’t wait!

    That road is wonderful – really drags you into the scene. I love Iceland just from your photos but i’ll love it even more once those rotten volcanoes stop erupting and gunking up Scottish airspace!

    My camera bag is special to me – it cost me £12 and it’s been one of my best camera purchases to date. It’s way more practical that the £70 pro-bag that came with my camera bundle. Anytime I go somewhere now I buy a patch or a badge from that place and place it on my bag like a souvenier of that particular adventure/mission – once i’ve got a bit more flair on it i’ll post a shot of it . It’s a bit bare at the moment though but still very cool indeed!

    What cool winding road. Is it long as well? Long and winding? Maybe Sir Paul was on it back in the day and got inspired? Hey. It could happen.
    Speaking of products you’ve reviewed – Just bought the 28-300 Nikon lens today. I meet a couple of cool guys who own a spot in Westlake that looks right out over the Colorado towards downtown. Going to try out the new glass on a sunset shot of Austin. Hope it’s as sweet as you’ve proclaimed it to be.
    Here’s a shot I grabbed at the Oasis of some talent doing a little Salsa dancing. It’s not “Wendy at the Beach”, but it’s easy on the eyes. ;)

    great road shot! Perfect. You (and a few other great photographers) have really piqued my interest about Iceland. It sounds really beautiful and some day I will explore it… and probably come across scenes like this and smile, thinking about all of your great Iceland images!

  • Simon Morris

    Wonderful image Trey – makes you long to know what’s around the corner, yeah! I like the cloud formation too – storm brewing weather… love it!
    I bought a new camera bag recently to compliment my new Nikon D700 – Lowepro’s ‘Pro Runner 350 AW’… awesome bag, I can’t fault it – highly recommended!
    You sound like a kid on Christmas Eve Trey… enjoy packing all that gear yeah, and hope your trip to Iceland goes well – I’m sure you’re going to have a great time, again!
    Gonzo (aka GINO) – great effort mate at capturing the ‘infamous’ Wendy… I’m going to give you 8/10 for trying!
    For me – well, I’m going to enjoy the rest of my BIG 40th birthday celebrations… yep, I’ve had a wee drinky or 5, had a great day and looking forward to the next 40 years! :-)

    So beautiful…..Everytime you upload an Iceland shot, I’m stunned. It must be a wonderful experience just to wander around and take photos. You’ll think I’m weird, but I had a dream before a few days about you. We were walking around and shooting in Prague…Probably I should change my homepage for a couple days, hehe.

    Superbly done, as usual.

    Reminds me a bit of Cape Breton Highlands of Nova Scotia. Of course, I haven’t been there in many a year. And as a permanent European these days, I likely won’t be there again soon. :-( Oh, well, I guess there’s always Iceland! :-)

    Oh, if you don’t mind. Is this a special plug-in that lists the Name/Mail/Website info above the comment area? Thanks.

    Anyway, one of my latest…http://roadslesstraveledphotography.com/2011/06/06/sunrise-sharm-el-sheikh-egypt/

    Fantastc Picture Trey, i love how it draws you in for another look again and again, awesome!

  • http://www.flickr.com/photos/edenbrackstone/ Eden Brackstone

    Again I draw parallels to NZ, and the many similar roads that wind up and down the coast and lakes… Beautiful scenery, if only it weren’t on the opposite side of the globe!

  • http://timetotakepictures.blogspot.com/ Keith Moyer

    Great pastel colors. Here is one I took of some awesome clouds http://timetotakepictures.blogspot.com Let me know wht you think!

  • Vicki Wilson

    Love the S curves in the road, it makes you want to follow it further, very nice shot! Trey, have a lot of fun on your upcoming trip, can’t wait to see more photos from there! Happy Birthday Simon, you are still very young at 40, hope you have a fun day celebrating!

  • http://roadslesstraveledphotography.com/ Matt Shalvatis

    Whoops! Forget the request in #6. Figured that out! :) Overlooking the obvious!

    Great shot! Love the clouds in this one. This also looks like a really fun road to drive on!

    Thanks – yes it reminds me of NZ too… Something about Iceland is a lot more lonely.

  • Susan

    Awesome shot – yes, makes you want to drive down that road and see what’s around the next corner! I know you will have a great time and your photos from there always show how much you love it!

  • http://www.danroads.com Dan

    Nice shot Trey! Me and my friend Justin have been going out quiet allot recently, been getting inspires ALLOT by all the photo’s I’ve seen recently. I cannot get enough of photography at the moment, I’m sure it will be a big part in my life!.

    Thanks!
    Dan

  • Simon Morris

    Vicki – thanks for your kind comments! With 40 years experience under my belt, I’m now going to put it ALL into practice… onwards and upwards, yeah! :-)

  • Julie

    Very cool. I like the mystery in this shot. I always wonder what it is that I can’t see.

  • http://www.wowphotoshdr.com Jim

    Man, I am a sucker for winding roads. That ia a great shot. I bet that place as a ton of them.
    Here is my attempt. http://www.wowphotoshdr.com/Other/FEATURED/14413329_yegt6#1090334475_UcXPd

  • Gail in Montana

    Wowee, beautiful photo, Trey. This one is now my desktop wallpaper!! I always miss your blog on Thursday, but usually catch up on Fridays. Now that I’m going to a Chiropractor 3 times a week, for 2 months, then gradually decreasing depending on how I’m doing, I have even less time ugh. But very glad I took the time this morning to see yesterday’s post, I love it!!! Thanks for sharing, have a great trip to Iceland. :-)

    I just love your processing Trey, outstanding. You bring the best out of a scene
