Been to Iceland? Want to go?

Iceland is a hot destination now, and for good reason. Airline bargains abound, and the scenery is amazing. If you haven’t discovered this beautiful country for yourself yet, I highly recommend making the trip. ¬†Whether you have just been or hope to go, you will be ¬†interested in the ASMP Photography exhibit in Pittsburgh this Friday July 9 at 803 Liberty Avenue. I will be exhibiting some large works from my recent trip to Iceland.

Volcanic eruptions are in the news now with action in both Hawaii and Guatemala. Iceland has been formed by volcanoes, and it has experienced recent eruptions. The Icelandic fishing center Heimaey Island, just southwest of the mainland, has recovered from a two-year eruption beginning in the 1973. You can learn all about it at the Museum of Remembrance and walk its quiet streets now lined with new homes.

Walking from the volcano Eldfell back toward the harbor town, I encountered this peaceful cemetery, which was dug out by hand during the cleanup operation.

If you like hiking, landscape photography and exploring quiet places on your own, you will enjoy a visit to Iceland.
