Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge: Travel

I have followed Sally’s blog for some time and her regular weekly feature with changing themes gives photography buffs a good array of choice and inspires creativity. I am thrilled to have a chance to blog some of my favourite travel photographs in her Challenger’s choice week.


A perfect day on the river!

A world like no other!

Joyously or not the photograph becomes the source of reality, but it can also become a dreamlike force for interpretation. So if photography is memory, then the image is the moment–a moment of sanctuary in a lifetime of them. [Source: Sally D]

Even when I am so old I can no longer travel, I will have my photos and memories to ponder about.

            1. Have you been there Andy? It is such a fascinating place. I loved it but I was there in the midst of winter, so not too much digging for fossils then. Still, I was in my element. Godafass I think with the wind chill factor that day had to be the coldest place on earth – well that I have been anyways…. This was taken west of Akureyri in the north of the country near to a geo thermal plant I visited.

            2. I’ve not been there myself Amanda, but I love volcanoes and their geology 🙂 BTW, just as well you didn’t go in the summer, you would still be there if you were looking for fossils! 🙂 The whole island only consists of volcanic rocks.
              Geothermal plants are really interesting and a brilliant way of getting basically free energy, they tried to open one up in south Cornwall, using the granite as a means of heating water to generate energy, the biggest problem they had, was drilling the two holes and connecting them at the bottom.
              I can quite imagine how cold it must have been, you get some really strong gales/storms in Iceland, that with the far colder weather than Scotland gets…………..brrrr!!!!! My bits are shrinking just thinking about it! Lol! 🙂

    1. It is a very pretty area of Norway, Sally and I had a lot of luck with the water that day. As I said in my comment to Raewyn, the photograph I took the day before of the same stretch of water wasn’t nearly as good due to the current flowing stronger. Not as good a reflection. Nature has to co-operate for a good photo.

    1. Thank you Raewyn. Coming fromas expert phtographer such as yourself that is a huge compliment for me. But then, it really came down to luck and nature playing its role well. The day before I had taken the same shot and it wasn’t half as good as the water was slightly rippled with the breeze and current!! Nature helps us with our photography at times, don’t you think?
