Weekly Photo Challenge – Wanderlust

Godafoss Falls, Iceland

Iceland was long on my Bucket List and eventually we made it happen.  Nor were we disappointed…far from it, a place to go back to.

Waterfalls, such as those at  Godafoss above, are high on the tourist trail and certainly magnificent to see and experience…. but despite all their glory it was another side of Iceland I will always remember.

The dramatic coast line of mountains, reaching up from the very shore line , capped with snow and perpetually touching the clouds….

The other surprise was that during the summer months the vegetation is so lush, varied and rich.Hesteyri, Iceland

That is how the weather has been…


Borrowdale, below Black Crag and Maiden Moor, Cumbria

Well the past few days have been very different to the early spring when wall to wall sunshine and record highs were recorded.  At least it brought out springs new growth.

Now we are ‘enjoying‘ damp and cold weather with heavy cloud with just the occasional break to allow a shaft of sunshine to brighten up a series of otherwise dull day.
