Path Between the Fields
I normally wouldn't choose to compose like this, with the road running right in the middle of the picture, but the red house down the road beneath those puffy clouds just seemed to demand it.

I was so surprised that this tiny little dirt track, which appeared to vanish well before the horizon, was marked by a sign, as though it were a recognizable highway.

Iceland is full of jaw-dropping natural wonders and major tourist attractions. One could spend two weeks doing little besides flitting about the country, checking out the places the tour books identify as must-see.
I began seeing on my first day in Iceland, however, that the entire country is incredibly beautiful - not just the headline attractions. My first real awakening to this occurred in Hella, a small, nondescript town that the tour books say is useful only in being a place to get gas on the way to something else. And while we were getting gas, I looked around, and this is what I saw - rolling hills, distant mountains, towering clouds and gleaming sunset colors. And I thought: this is the uninteresting part of Iceland?! Am I in some sort of photographer's heaven?
The answer, as it unfolded repeatedly over the next thirteen days, was an emphatic Yes!
