Gone to See Iceland 2013 Photography Safari with Mike Hagen. Day 7: Eldhraun Lava Field.
When I first set this image of the day photo blog up, I was committed to post an image from this day (not necessarily this year) every day. And sometimes commentary of what I was doing and reviews of photo gear, image processing software, and computer gear. I fell way behind during the Semester at Sea Spring 2013 Enrichment Voyage (~52 Days – Spain, Monaco, Italy, Spain, Gibraltar, Morocco, Portugal, Belgium, Netherlands, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Ireland, England, Norway, Latvia, Russia, Sweden, Denmark, Germany) with very limited internet access. Once back home I needed to digest the ~70K images I took. When working through these images I noticed that Mike Hagen had an opening for an Iceland Photo Adventure end of July/beginning of August. I contacted Mike to see if I could sign up at the last-minute. Mike was actually in Africa on a different Photo Adventure. His wife got back to me and I signed up. Iceland has always been on my list of places I wanted to visit. Iceland is an image rich environment!!! In the 10 days including travel I took ~35K images. Reykjavik, Geysers, Puffins, Glaciers….)
As far as milestones, I have been retired for just over 1 year – and have visited more than 20 countries, and taken over 200K images. Also, as of yesterday it has also been just over a year since I last shaved. Do I let the beard grow for another year?
