Photo: Behind The Scenes || Iceland VS Chuck Norris

What’s that Iceland? You’re planning some wind? Some Rain? BRING IT ON! My buddy Chuck here can handle it.

Speaking of which, did you know that Chuck Norris sleeps with a night lite. Not because he is afraid of the dark, but because the dark is afraid of Chuck Norris? True story, look it up.

Now, before I get too distracted with Chuck Norris facts—and I have many—I’m excited to start our short driving adventure around Iceland. I would like to give a big thanks to Susanna from Icelandishot.com for helping us plan the best use of our time. We only have a few days but I’m sure it’s going to be awesome.

Oh, and the Chuck Norris Van from KuKuCampers.is ? Well... Honestly, I just couldn’t help myself. Come on, it’s f@%King Chuck Norris! ;)
Photo: Workshop Cambodia 2012 || The Festival Of The Dead

Early this morning we led the group to the Wat Bo temple in Siem Reap to watch and photograph the Pchum Ben Festival, known to us as the Festival of the Dead. It’s a time when the spirits of the dead ancestors walk the Earth and the living can ease their suffering by offering them food to eat. Shortly after the main ceremony I managed to make some new friends. :)

At about 5:30am this morning — and after an extra strong cappuccino — I walked from our little apartment in Atrani over to Amalfi. From there, I took a 45 minute bus ride along the jagged and beautiful Amalfi coastline towards the City of Positano. After a bit more walking, I set up in my previously scouted location, spending 1.5 hours waiting for the perfect light and enjoying this extraordinary view. The weather has been beautiful today and after nearly two weeks of perfect blue skies, it was a rare pleasure to see clouds. It made my heart sing.

"May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view. May your mountains rise into and above the clouds."

In my 4-year teaching career, I only gave out 4 A’s. On one hand it was because I only wanted to applaud truly exceptional work. On the other hand it was well… It’s because I’m really hard to impress.

Now, as a full time travel photographer, I’m just as harsh a critic except it’s not Motion Graphics and Animation that I’m grading, it’s landscapes, architecture, and popular destinations. And out of the 25+ Countries I’ve visited so far, the Icelandic landscape gets an “A” F@%KING Plus.

On a side note, this is also one of the best sunsets I’ve seen in quite some time. Well played Iceland, well played. :)
