I found these interesting mussels on a beach in Lincoln City, Oregon. They make a pretty cool pattern.

Lava field in Budir, Iceland
I loved the colours of the small plants against the rugged black lava.

There are lots of interesting abstract designs to be found at the Krysuvik Geothermal Area in Iceland.

Three River Otters
I was making photos of the incredible surf and making my way down the beach when, out of the corner of my eye, I saw something move. River otters! In a lagoon that I didn’t even know was there.

Northern Lights over Lava Field
The original plan was to start the tour the next morning, but with that kind of activity we seized the opportunity. Since we were still in the capital city of Reykjavik, we had to get away from the city lights to see the best aurora, so we drove to some lava fields about half an hour away from the city.
