    Your a fine photographer. Iceland seems so remote. Thank you for bringing it a little closer

    Good luck & good travels.

    Thank you! After the trip to Iceland I bought an even better camera (SLR model). Landscapes there are so amazing and I want to take even better pictures. Iceland is also far away from Finland. First I had to drive through Sweden to Denmark and then a long boat trip to Iceland. But its worth of all travellin!

    what an excellent adventure !

    If you want to put music to your pics you could use Led Zeppelin's "Immigrant Song" .... ha!
