Kirkjufell, also known as “Church Mountain,” is famous for its unique shape. It is a beautifully shaped symmetric, free standing mountain on the northern coastlinef the Snaefell's Peninsula to the west of the Grundarfiord Bay. The creation of these mountains can be traced to the latest cold epoch of the ice age, when the glaciers and their rivers were seriously carving out the landscape. The landscape of the northern part of the peninsula was gradually shaped during the last one million years. It is claimed to be the most photographed mountain in Iceland. It was one of the filming locations for Game of Thrones season 6 and 7, featuring as the "arrowhead mountain" that the Hound and the company north of the Wall see when capturing a wight.. 🇮🇸🏞️
Dyrhólaey ("the hill island with the door hole") is a small promontory or peninsula located on the south coast of Iceland, about 2.5 hour drive from Reykjavik, not far from the beautiful little village Vík. It was formerly an island of volcanic origin. The volcano erupted about 100,000 years ago during the Pleistocene. The peninsula has an elevation of 120 metres (390 ft), and the Dyrhólaey Lighthouse sits at the top of the formation facing the sea. On top in the higher area of Dyrhólaey you will have a breathtaking view to all directions, including Mýrdalsjökull glacier and the endless black coastline. 🇮🇸🏞️
One of the most beautiful waterfalls in Iceland, with beautiful rainbows from last September! Wonder how it looks in winter now. This massive, two-tiered waterfall, one 36 ft (11 meters) high, and the other 69 ft (21 meters) high, into the 1.6-mile (2.5 m) long crevasse below. It was believed that catastrophic flood waves created this crevasse at the end of the Ice Age. 🇮🇸🏞️
Starting from Reykjavík, this is Thingvellir National Park, along the Golden Circle Route. First impression: Iceland is not all ice, it is actually quite green, especially during this late summer early autumn time. It has a much milder climate than Greenland - glaciers cover 11% of the land, compared to 80% of Greenland. Gulf Stream brings mild Atlantic air to the south and east coasts, where Iceland's first national park is, considering the nation's birthplace. The magical landscapes at Thingvellir are formed in the unique geographical setting of a rift valley in the divide between the North-American and Eurasian continental plates. 🇮🇸🏞️

It's been quite a while since my last post here. I've been pretty active on Instagram @vauns_photography and on Uglyhedgehog.com @Vaun's Photography. Since my last post I've adopted an 8 year old Australian Blue Heeler or cattle dog 🐕. He came with the name T'Challa which is an African word which translates as Black Panther. We decided that name was more appropriate for a feline 🐈 than a dog 🐕, so we renamed him Ranger. He is a bundle of energy! And he loves to ride, usually in my pickup, but sometimes in my car 🚗. He needs some training still, but he is learning somethings already. He has learned to wait, usually patiently, as I take photos on our daily walks, of which there are usually two per day. Some things he needs to learn not to do include chasing cats, chasing squirrels or rabbits and tracking scents onto the road in front of traffic. My wife says he's definitely my dog 🐕, so, unless I'm sick, it's my responsibility to walk him and to clean up behind him. He stay inside a lot of the time, but he is able to go outside in our front yard during the day. Mobile Home Park rules require him to be inside at night. He gets to go hiking with me when I'm well enough to go. We're glad his part of our family now!

“I go to nature to be soothed and healed, and to have my senses put in order.” —John Burroughs Today on 5th June 2021 i.e., World Environment Day I did 3 special things: 1) As recommended by my college, attended a live webinar on this year's World Environment Day theme 'Ecosystem Restoration'. The slogan - "Recreate, Reimagine, Restore" - focuses on reversing the damage and restoring our ecosystems.🌱 2) Captured this beautiful picture of the view outside my house.😇 (So as to have something to put up as my status update.) 3) Reminisced the good times when we used to organise rallies from our school to nearby places, holding placards and shouting slogans and spontaneously feeling proud on what we were doing. For a cause, for a purpose! 💚
Having spent over three decades on this planet, I have come to several realizations. The chief being that 'LIFE IS DIFFICULT' and it is meant to be difficult. The earlier you realize this fact and learn to live with, the easier it gets to manage certain shocking events. Be ready to handle disappointments, because before this journey is over, you will be disappointed several times. Be ready to handle betrayals because you will be betrayed many times, and you might also betray others. Get ready to handle loss because, you will lose friends and loved ones, and I don't mean they will go missing or stop being your friends(those are also possibilities) but in this case, I mean they will die and you will weep for them. Be ready for heartbreaks because your heart will be broken, may be, more than once and you'll probably break some hearts yourself. Get ready for pleasant surprises because you will get quite a few. Get ready for joy and laughter because you will also have those in abundance. Get ready for opportunities because they will come and some only once, and you will regret it if you let them pass. So take life as it comes with your shock absorbers in place. Cry when the tears come, laugh the hardest when laughter presents itself. Love like it is your last day(it may very well be) and take as many pictures as you can. Tell and show your kids you love them at every opportunity. Kiss your spouse, talk to your family, tell your parents you appreciate them. Take that dance class, run that marathon, go on that hike, live ! just live!. Forgive that person who hurt you, that may be your only opportunity to do so, repair as much breaches as you can. For as difficult as life may be, numerous are the joys to be found and had there in, if only we can truly look.
It's been some time since I've posted here. With Covid19 still a concern with many of us, I've added a new interest in my life. Well it's not really that new, but it has been quite a long time since I've had guppies and seen their small babies, also known as fry. I used to have Neon Tetras in my 5 gallon aquarium, but now I've got two guppies, a female which last month gave birth to at least 1 fry, possibly two. I have separated the fry and put it in a1.5 gallon aquarium. The first male died and has been replaced and the female is pregnant again. Now in the 5 gallon aquarium are the two guppies, one Cherry shrimp and a snail 🐌. In the 1.5 gallon aquarium are the fry, a Blue Phantom shrimp and another snail 🐌. I have live plants in both tanks. I have read and heard that aquariums require less maintenance with live plants. The photo is of the fry and the snail in the 1.5 gallon aquarium. Stay safe and healthy!
I recently changed my aquarium from Neon Tetras which had all died, to Guppies. I started out with one female and one male. I added a rainbow shrimp for cleaning the bottom, and a snail for algae control on the glass sides. The female became pregnant, the male died. The female gave birth, not the multiple births I expected, but to just one. Now I need to set up a tank for the baby, called a fry. I have a smaller tank which I can use, I have a heater, but need a water filter and thermometer for the new tank. Shown in the photo is the fry, needing a new home soon for its protection.
“Chapel of Glass: Lace and Architecture Anthony Chapel 1 of 4”Garvan Gardens, Hot Springs, AR This was from two years ago when I was at Garvan Gardens in the spring. It is hard to believe that was two years ago and a lifetime away from Covid. The black and white on this is really tricky on these with 1) so much light, 2) so much wood that without a lot of fiddling around on Lightroom it would look to bleached to be interesting, and 3) so much hidden depth in the wood to try to capture.
