When the Earth was Young

London PhotoWalk Reminder

In just a few days, we’ll be having the big London PhotoWalk! I look forward to meeting readers in the UK. Feel free to come on out and walk around with us, even if you are not a photographer!

Daily Photo – When the Earth was Young

This unique area of Iceland has new surprises at every turn.

The strange milky-blue water boils up from underground. There is a big part of you that wants to touch it to see how hot is is. The other part of you is scared to touch it. These two parts never stop fighting until you go ahead and touch it. Then, you discover it’s not all that hot after all, and it only reinforces a already poorly-reinforced decision matrix for the next time.

    Beautiful Trey – kind of ‘dreamy’- I would have touched it too!

  • Beautiful photo.

  • The format makes it look panoramic! Great one anyway. Lookin’ forward to the UK photos.

  • Outstanding – it’s like a location from the original ‘Star Trek’ series or something!

  • Did you get to go for a dip; its the ultimate for de-stressing and re-energising.

  • I love the mood of this picture. The reflection is awesome and I specially like the blue tones in the water. Trey, have you ever tried ND filters with HDR ? You can get a great mood in the water then and clouds movement in the sky. I let you here 2 examples:

    Absolutely stunning photo, Trey!!!! Another one to add to my favorites! Thanks so much for sharing. We are really enjoying our cruise. Today we went to Walla Walla, and Pendleton. Tomorrow we’ll be sailing down the Columbia on my birthday!! Hope your week is going well. Hopefully, I’ll see you tomorrow night wherever we dock and have internet again.

  • THanks all!

    Sev – thanks for the links – will check them out !

  • I like the square format for this photo, looks great. Colors and everything come together beautifully… as always. 😀
