Something different from me this time. The Sun Voyager is described as a dreamboat or an ode to the sun. Created by Jôn Gunnar Árnason it was intended to convey the promise of undiscovered territory, a dream of hope, progress and freedom. Its located in the city of Reykjavik in Iceland.
It was such a bleak wet afternoon when I took this shot and I thought at the time it would work best in mono so it was processed using Silver Efex Pro.

Here's a different take on a recent post. I've been playing around with Silver Efex Pro recently and thought this shot might work well with the aim of bringing out more of the detail in the erupting geyser. Hopefully this works.

One of the hopes of our short visit to Iceland was the possibility of seeing the Aurora Borealis. The weather on the chosen day wasn't looking good so the day was changed. We were taken to an isolated location with nothing around but a church. Whilst taking a shot of the church I got really lucky as suddenly there was a brief aurora display in the sky overhead.

I had an encounter on a quiet beach with this fabulous looking bird on my last day in St Lucia. Like so many of the birds I photographed I was able to approach to within a few metres of the subject.

Iceland is well known for its geological features and geysers are one such phenomenon. They are found in areas of volcanic activity. The water is heated by magma below the earth's surface and when the pressurised water boils it is forced up into the air though a vent in the earth's surface. Strokkur erupts every few minutes to a height of about 30 meters, it's impressive to watch. Strokkur is Icelandic for churn.
