For this years Holiday cards I was inspired to print original images in the darkroom. To give credit where credit is due, many thanks to Steven Louis Ray for the great idea. The time spent in the darkroom was like meditation for me.
These images were made in western Iceland in winter. The solitude and beauty of this place at this time of year is hard to describe. The "ring road" which is the main highway around the Island is so deserted there were several times where I was able to stop in the middle of the road, set up a tripod and make several images over the space of 15-20 minutes, and never see another car. Iceland in the wintertime is the perfect place for a lone traveler to rediscover oneself and see unparalleled natural beauty. "Peace on Earth" just about sums it up, and that is the wish I have for all during this season and in the year ahead.
