My facebook

This is my personal blog, not a venue for saleable images. In fact, because it's here that I share things that are important to me with the members of the moblog community, photo quality's not my priority. Events, occasions, achievements, thoughts, trips and experiments - you'll find them all here. Contact me for the development version of my photo portfolio, for a selection of saleable images or visit my dance photography blog or my website for cuttings. And remember that all photos remain my copyright unless I've specifically said otherwise.

"Every time I see an adult on a bicycle I no longer despair for the future of the human race"
........ H G Wells

"All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better"
........ Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Luck favours the prepared mind"
........ Louis Pasteur

"Never to get lost is not to live, not to know how to get lost brings you to destruction, and somewhere in the terra incognita in between lies a life of discovery."
........ Rebecca Solnit

"Give, give, give -- what is the point of having experience, knowledge or talent if I don't give it away? Of having stories if I don't tell them to others? Of having wealth if I don't share it? I don't intend to be cremated with any of it! It is in giving that I connect with others, with the world and with the divine."
........ Isabel Allende

"Don't ask yourself what the world needs - ask yourself what makes you come alive, and then go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive."
........ Harold Thurman Whitman

"The real voyage of discovery consists not of seeing new landscapes, but in having new eyes...."
........ Marcel Proust

"It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them.. you have no such accurate remembrance of a country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle...."
........ Ernest Hemingway

"Ambition leads me not only father than any other man has been before me, but as far as I think it is possible for man to go."
........ James Cook

"The grand show is enternal. It is always sunrise somewhere; the dew is never dried all at once; a shower is forever falling; vapour is ever rising. Eternal sunrise, eternal dawn and gloaming, on sea and continents and islands, each in its turn, as the round earth rolls."
........ John Muir

"The bicycle is the most civilised conveyance known to man. Other forms of transport grow daily more nightmarish. Only the bicycle remains pure in heart."
........ Iris Murdoch

"Photography for me is not looking, it's feeling. If you can't feel what you're looking at, then you're never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your picture...."
........ Don McCullin

A historic walk - this was once the Seat of the Icelandic Government. The third shot is a passage between the two continental shelves that in moving apart cause so many Icelandic earthquakes

Caine says:

Gorgeous! At first glance, the building in the top shot looks like a giant crown in the distance.

Wonderful pictures from Þingvellir, the Parliament Plains in Iceland. The site of the first still existing parliament in the World. Amazing to think the parliament met in this gorgeous place for centuries without a permanent building. And then the parliament was discontinued in the late 18th century and restarted in Reykjavik the capital city of Iceland in 1845.

Wow. Beautiful and fascinating. I'm another moblogger who would love to go to Iceland (you must be collecting a lot of us here!).

It's amazing - seems that Iceland is one place that loads of people really want to get to. If you are interested, next time you come back to the UK check out the Icelandair flights. I know they do Seattle-Iceland-Heathrow and Boston-Iceland-Heathrow so maybe there will be a flight and stopover that suits you

I never even thought of that! Will look into it when the time comes (getting scarily close for Crickson, don't know about me yet). Thanks.
