Where have I been, you ask? Well, currently sheltered in place under lockdown like millions of other U.S. residents and other people around the world is the convenient answer. But that was after returning from an epic vacation that began in early February and ending when we returned home on March 8th; a full month on the road!
The epic adventure took us to Iceland for an 8-day photo tour and after that tour was completed we headed to Portugal for about 4 nights before flying to Morocco for an 18-day tour. Needless to say, it was great to be home (except for being under lockdown).
Iceland was a photographer’s paradise; beautiful scenery, landscapes and unique black sand beaches and wonderful sunrises and sunsets; we even got a sighting of that elusive Northern Light. We had some nice clear weather and some cold windy days with some snow and on the last day of the photo tour a huge rare winter storm that shut down all of the roads and businesses in that country. We returned to Reykjavik, Iceland’s capital, the night before the last day our tour was to end to beat the road closures and while cautioned to stay inside the hotel due to flying debris we ventured out to do some errands. I used part of this time to do a doorscursion in the freezing cold with hurricane gusts and rain to contend with.
I was amazed to find the housing units were very colorful, there were very few high rise buildings due to the typical high winds in that country. Rather than drop a load of doors in this post I’ll contribute a simple glass door affixed to a corner store because I haven’t been processing my door photos yet. Note that Coca Cola seems to be very popular in Iceland.

The photo tour took us to many places and this is a sample of what we saw of the Vestrahorn Volcanic Mountain area.
