The Mighty Peaks and Soft RiverI'm going up again soon to the northern part of Iceland to visit some friends, and it will be great fun. This time, I'll have to convince them to come out with me on a little photo adventure... Right before you get to Akureyri, the road twists along a valley that runs beside these mountains. They are beautiful and scenic, but very difficult to photograph. You keep looking and looking and looking for an angle, and it never quite works out. I found this one by accident. There was a little side road that looked interesting. I took it, and then it almost immediately went off the side of a hill! It turns out it wasn't a side-road at all, but some kind of fake-road meant to trick dumb people like me. So, after sliding to a stop, I went out to see if my 4th wheel was dangling over the side. It wasn't, but I did see a little path that went down by the river. I thought there might be a good vantage point, so I took my rig down there to get this shot. -Trey Ratcliff Read more here at the Stuck in Customs blog.
