Autumn tranquility

my main photo storage drive conked out yesterday – and thanks to the redundant drive – i was creating new backups. during this time i ended reviewing some of the photos i have. this photo caught my eye, it was one of the photo from the autumn trip to iceland that was not over the […]

christmas 2010

this Christmas i have the same accomplices from the last time with the exception of Karthick not being here. and we are headed towards Iceland, my 3rd trip in 4 years, and 2 trip during winter. the winter wonderland, somehow keeps my interests high and i am not able to take this location out of […]

iceland revisited

the 10 day trip to Iceland was nothing short of awesome, the place has me captivated. and my desire to frequently visit iceland has only increased. out of the planned route, i had to skip the north western fjords and north eastern Iceland because of the road conditions from the snow. spring, snow, rain, wind, […]

First on the list of places to visit was the photography museum. hosting a collection of photographs taken from flickr by Icelandic photographers, the collection was just as […]
