Snæfellsnes is a relatively quiet and peaceful part of Iceland. Every first-time tourist does the Blue Lagoon and the Golden Circle and a good proportion of them go along the south coast. But it’s a long day trip to do from Reykjavik so Snæfellsnes tends to be the preserve of the slightly more hardened tourist. I… More Photoset: Snæfellsnes
Although I wrote this more than two weeks ago, today is the day that I’m coming home from my 2017 trip to Edinburgh. And what better August photoset than pictures from my previous trip?
July’s photoset is some of my favourite landscapes – so favourite that I’ve got them on rotation on my work computer. Think of me, by the way – as this is posted, I’m hopefully surviving my first ever Guide camp without an older, more experienced leader as ultimately responsible. I’ll tell you all about it… More Photoset: landscapes in black & white
I love the Myvatn Nature Baths, the famous Blue Lagoon’s slightly less well-known northern cousin. It’s exactly the same water, blue and milky and it crackles if you stick your head underneath but the Nature Baths sit on the side of a lovely orange active volcano and although I can’t capture it with my camera,… More Photoset: Myvatn Nature Baths
It’s May and the sun is shining so when better for a photoset of some of my favourite pictures from Tromsø in February. Tromsø is easily the most photogenic place I’ve ever been and I put so many of them on Instagram for so long that I couldn’t imagine sharing this photoset in any shape other than… More Photoset: Tromsø 2017
I love volcanoes so let’s have a look at some of them. These are all my photos but some volcanoes I’ve got up close and personal with and so I’ve added links to posts about those ones. You can read my post about my 31st birthday at Askja here and my 28th birthday at Askja here.… More Photoset: volcanoes
Yes, I know fire hydrants might be an odd thing to decide to do a photoset on but Reykjavik has one idiosyncrasy that I love. It has red and yellow fire hydrants scattered around the entire city and it seems to be a national pastime to draw faces on them. And I can’t resist taking… More Photoset: Reykjavik fire hydrants
A lot of my photos are somewhere on the spectrum of blue-grey-green-brown-black-white so I decided that my next photoset would be red-themed. That was a mistake – I have very few red-themed photos but I’ve dragged a few out, mostly from Switzerland.
I have a somewhat ambivalent relationship with camping – when it’s good, it’s great but when it’s bad it’s awful. In two and a half weeks, I will be camping with eight assorted Rangers and Guides. Guide camp in February. So this post is a series of photos highlighting one of my good camping trips… More Photoset: the highs and lows of camping
For a most unseasonal winter – it’s astonishingly warm here after being so bitterly cold a few weeks ago – I have a little selection of snow pictures for your delectation.
