Unlike most of Iceland's great waterfalls, where you are likely to see one or two tour buses, Aldeyjarfoss is little bit off the beaten path. In addition to the beautiful glacial water, the very prominent basalt columns, and the magnificence of the waterfall itself--the isolation of this location is one of the greatest draws—very few people seem to make the trip. In fact, we did not see a single other person while we were there. We had it to ourselves, and it was amazing.
A missed turn resulted in a bit of a detour during my recent trip to Iceland. This required us to drive the winding road around Hvalfjörður instead of taking the tunnel for a more direct route. After seeing the views the fjord offered, everyone in my group was pleased with the mistake.
I wasn't expecting to see such a beautiful landscape in Healy, Alaska*. I was there because it is relatively close to Denali National Park. The night before was cloudy and rainy and visibility was limited. My jaw dropped the next morning when I stepped out onto the balcony of our B&B (Denali Lakeview Inn) and saw that the storm had passed. In its place a beautiful landscape was revealed.
*This was my first trip to Alaska; I did not yet understand that most of Alaska is ridiculously beautiful.
The vast fields of lupins are easy to take for granted in Iceland-they are everywhere it seems. This particular location was one of my favorites. The scene was just perfect: the church on the hill, a small narrow road winding its way through a field of flowers, and the sun trying to peak through the clouds.
This is the future of live events. When something is allowed to broadcast free of geographic restrictions and artificial tape delays, the audience goes global. When traditional media is allowed to converge with social networks, anything can become a shared moment.
Great job Felix & #RedBullStratos ! And , for inexplicably handling such a huge number of concurrent streams without imploding.
