Vik, south Iceland, and apparently it's rainiest town. So, catching it in a few days of sun, I made the most of it! These are the famous rock-stacks out to sea, supposedly trolls caught by the sun dragging a ship to land. They make an impressive backdrop to the town, and a nice point to any photo...again, longer exposure means flowing water and fuller colours, I've used the natural shape of the water as a lead in line to the photo, though it took quite a while to get it right on location!

If you love something, set it free. It it comes back to you, it is yours. If it does not, it was never meant to be. Wil

It's not just the water that flows here. What a wonderful play of dark and light. The overall design could stand alone as an abstract. Just lovely! A 10 in my book.

If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away. Henry D. Thoreau
