Icelandic Ponies

Horse Cuddles

There are a huge amount of horses and ponies in Iceland and we stopped a few times to see if we could capture the mood of the local horses in Iceland.

This is one image that I think goes someone to porting the playful nature of these gentle animals.

There are numerous tourism businesses in Iceland based around offering treks on horseback for every range of riding capabilities and that is something that is on my bucket list to do for sure!

‘Rust’!

Rust Compilation

Whilst in Iceland recently we visited an area of an old Viking village and some of the lads I was travelling with did not want to ‘stay and play’, so i was dropped off for a while to explore.

Although the landscape experience was very good, some more of the micro opportunity became evident due to the additional time I had to explore.

This rust compilation is the result of just cruising around and ‘smelling the roses’!

There was and old rusty buoy laying on its side with some awesome colours and textures just screaming out to be photographed…so i obliged! 🙂

The Peak, Iceland

Lone Mountain St

I think one of the more lasting memories I have of Iceland is just how many of these ‘Lone’ pinnacle mountains there are scattered all over Iceland. I guess at some stage they were all Volcanoes.

For sure that make for a great backdrop to a beautifully tones scene!

Wild!

Wild

Wild…Iceland Wild! This beach was really something different. Black sand, highly polished back river stones up high, ancient hexagonal stone structure reaching for the sky, wild seas, pinnacle rocks punch out of the sea for the sky and a quicksand beach going around the headland.

Really something quite unique to anything or anywhere I have ever been before!

The Iceland Team

The Walk

The Exit

Here are a couple of shots of the Iceland team, Neal Pritchard (AKA Mr. Spool), Mikie Mike Fletcher (AKA Mikie Mike, Hack 🙂 ), Clint Baker (AKA aaaaand dennn!), Brent Pearson (AKA Brenbat) and yours truly (AKA True North Mark!)

I tried to show them the concept of a skydiving exit out of the crashed DC3…somewhat of a failed mission, but good fun all the same.

The scene here was so black and white to start with that the black and white conversion made little or no difference at all!
