As I was driving through the beautiful city of Akureyri in Iceland the clouds started getting in unusual shapes. One of those was kind of round and I started looking for a spot to capture this unique scene. A few miles down the road I found a small pond with calm waters that created a perfect reflection. I took advantage of this, so I set up everything and fired away. This was the final result, enjoy!!!
This is simply a nature lover and photographer’s dream stop. It doesn’t matter what angle you take a photo from, it is sure to be a winner. The Icelandic government has helped restore the falls by adding gravel paths and cleaning up what had turned into a muddy mess. This is one of the most beautiful and most photographed parts of Iceland. Enjoy!!!
n. the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own—populated with their own ambitions, friends, routines, worries and inherited craziness—an epic story that continues invisibly around you like an anthill sprawling deep underground, with elaborate passageways to thousands of other lives that you’ll never know existed, in which you might appear only once, as an extra sipping coffee in the background, as a blur of traffic passing on the highway, as a lighted window at dusk.
This country stole my heart, it made me realize that nature will always be there to easy your pains, to comfort you. Beauty is around us, take a second to enjoy it, to admire it, to get lost in it.
Today I realized that every one has a story so different and unique. We forge our own future through our steps in life. Make every step count, enjoy!!!

Sitting on the edge of the Oregon coast, a gaping, seemingly bottomless sinkhole swallows the unbroken stream of seawater around it. But Thor’s Well, as the natural wonder is known, is not bottomless. The well is actually a hole in the rock that appears to drain water from the ocean. Even if the well is not quite as magic as it seems, it still manages to produce amazing sights
The site is most spectacular at high tide, or during storms when water washes violently over the rocks and funnels into the hole. During these sudden torrents, unsuspecting visitors to the site run the risk of being swept right into the maelstrom. Regardless of the risks, photographers and nature lovers continue to flock to the stunning fountain to see the aggressive waters that live up to their godly namesake’s stormy personality. Enjoy!!!
Joy in looking and comprehending is nature's most beautiful gift.-- Albert Einstein
As I descended the path to the base of the waterfall, I realized that nature is just perfect. Latourell Falls, a 249' plunge, is beautiful in all seasons. In the summer, the water flow is very low, creating near misty conditions. The beauty of this jewel just takes your breath away! I just couldn't resist getting close to it and to get wet in the really cold water. Enjoy!!!
