Daily Photo – Away from Iceland for the Summer

This is the first summer in quite some time that I have not been to Iceland. Many of the regular readers here know how I like to go there every summer during the solstice for a serious photography adventure. It’s very nice to spend countless days and nights there by myself… just listening to strange music and finding wonderful little places to take photos.

I didn’t go this summer because of the big move to New Zealand. That ended up taking a massive amount of time to get everything settled down here. But, as for next summer, I’m thinking about Iceland or Norway.. we’ll see! 🙂

    Very nice. I see you just relocated to New Zealand. I’m guessing you’ve heard of the Black Seeds by now-one of my favorite bands! I hope NZ is treating you well.
