Black lava sand and sea stacks
Have you ever been on a beach with black sand and on the horizon you can see some sea stacks? Well that's Iceland for you! And in Iceland this is not something unusual.

View from Old Pali Road Trail on #Oahu - the old highway used to get from leeward to windward side of the island. It was built barely hanging on to the side of a mountain. http://www.ottsworld.com/blogs/hiking-oahu-hawaii/

Exciting weather
When I was in Thailand on vacation I overheard some people complaining about the weather in Iceland.
-It was always raining there, they complained, and went on, although they had beautiful black lava sand beaches there, there was no way anyone could take a swim in that ice cold ocean!
Well, I thought to myself, these people could obviously not been photographers!

National Day of Sweden
Today we celebrate our national day here in Sweden.
I realized yesterday that I did not really have any good image that could represent this day to honor it. So I went out at nine o'clock in the evening and brought home this picture. It may represent a nice summer evening in Sweden in early June. And with that I want to send you all a bouquet of flowers!

I was inside a California lava cavern
called Subway in 1960's. It had a
too easy walkway smoothing a
trek vulcanism had left too untidy.
Have since visited other lava caves
at ID, NM, OR. and WA. Carrizozo
malpais had the most rattlesnakes.

Midsummer night
Tomorrow we are selebrating the Midsummer eve here in Sweden. During this time of year the sun only dissappear just under the horizon for a few hours. The Magic hour starts at two a clock in the morning and it sets at ten past ten in the evening. But it never gets really dark. It's a great time indeed!

Love-in-a-Mist
A focus stacked 9 image macro of the flower "Love-in-a-mist"  ( Nigella damascena  ) Taken with my standard "kit" lens with a simple 16mm Macro tube  on my OM-D E-M5ii using focus bracketing, then stacked in PS to give an "impossible" depth of field.

Há dias de sorte, mas a sorte é preciso encontrá-la!

Adormeci a pensar na viagem do dia seguinte. As interrogações surgiam-me em catadupa. Queria muito ver uma praia, mas esta não era uma praia qualquer. Dizem que em certas alturas do ano é vermelha! Será que era mesmo assim? Mas, não é a melhor altura do ano, será que valeria a pena ir? E para lá chegar? Para evitar excursões seriam 4 h de viagem usando 4 modos de transporte distintos. Sozinha, sem mapa e num país onde quase não consigo comunicar a viagem parecia-me condenada ao fracasso…

No dia seguinte madruguei, mas ao fim de 1 h de viagem os meus receios confirmaram-se. Era quase impossível ir e voltar à praia sem aderir a uma excursão ou táxi. Foi enquanto digeria toda a informação e estava prestes a desistir que recebi um convite inesperado de uma família chinesa que se dirigia para o local. Apesar dos receios e da dificuldade em comunicar embarquei com eles. Depois de mais de uma hora de viagem nem quis acreditar. A praia estava quase deserta e não estava um bocadinho vermelha, havia manchas enormes espalhadas ao longo de vários quilómetros. Só tive vontade de correr e pular pelo meio daquela imensidão vermelha.

Sunny Blue
It was a perfect sunny day like today and I was at the beach in Gotland where you can explore all kind of marvelous rocks wherever you go on this island. Do yourself a favor and take the time to take a closer look and enjoy the rocks yourself...
Gotland is an island in Sweden.
