  • When you travel from Reykjavik, you first reach Dyrholaey, then drive east of Reynisfjall and enter the town of Vik. In the first pic, you are on top of the rock that gives you the view over ...
  • Had not heard that story, Reynir is just a man's name, probably one of the first settlers there, " drangar " means a pillar of rocks.
  • Lea's shot is from the town of Vik, the beach just beneath.  Dyrholaey (Dyr = Door, Ey = Island) is on the other side of the mountain you can see in Lea's photo. The stacks of rocks I think you ...
  • Very nice, Lea, I have a few from the other side, next time you should go there. https://flic.kr/p/aCKpXY https://flic.kr/p/aCGLE2 https://flic.kr/p/e6Utie One can spend a lot of time there!
  • Replied in Another
    Here is one from today, testing the 18-35mm, it's an absolute favorite lens now, sharp from corner to corner, great at infinity too.  My 17-70mm is collecting dust now, if anyone is interested. ...
  • Replied in Reykjavik
    From an elevated point, on a good autumn day.  DP2M
  • I never thoguht this rather common scene for me could be so interesting! Very nicely done. Hekla looks small there, but in fact it's a extremely active volcanoe and a big one. And it has a short ...
  • Replied in Dinner time
    From my backyard.  SD15+50-500mm OS
  • Outstanding image, Lea. This is one of my first sd9 image with the superb 50mm macro.  This combo could give some really nice colors and results: Yellow boat
  • I like this image, taking advantage of all kinds of weather is what you have to do :)
  • Replied in Eclectic
    Like them all, especially second and third.
  • Thanks, this is a SD15 photo, like some local names, a composite photo, taken with my old 17-70mm (superb lens, but now being replaced by 18-35 f1.8)
  • Our names are somewhat strange I believe, lot's of composite names, two or thee nouns can form a one long name.  This one just means "Bárdur's hill" og "Bárdur's top"  Bárdur was one of the first ...
  • Created discussions From the backyard
    From last summer, a photo looking towards the Vatnajökull glacier area, we're now having a clean lava eruption, without ash, but the glacier is not far away, which would smell trouble if it moves ...
  • Thank God you did not ask us to count the trees. It's so pleasing to see those natural forests.
  • I'd like help out, first I have to digest this new term "volcanic pixel", before I can say anything that does not sound too stupid. I'd like to try the pixels I possess at some eruptions, in fact, ...
  • Replied in Roos in winter
    This looks like a hot summer day in Iceland, except for the kangaroos and forests... Very nice.
  • Bellman is "world famous" up here too. When I got my first dp2, I liked to zoom in like that quite often, but as I never had a Bayer camera, I did not realize what I was really looking at.
  • Wow, that's one of the top news of 2014, at least in this forum.  Congrats!  :-)
  • I think the Frauleins's arguments are pretty strong though.
