After the best part of 18 months writing my Ph.D. thesis, we had a long weekend in Iceland. Good timing too, for the banking system collapsed shortly after we returned home and it was great to go.

Just look at how the mountains
so very mighty be
sharp as razors at the top they span the land + sea
but don’t forget that though
majestic spires,
capped with snow…
from each and every grain of sand
is where they grow

Highlights of this gallery have to be the sculpture of the Viking warship on the seafront in Reykjavik and the Blue Lagoon hot springs, a fantastic way to spend the morning before getting on the plane home.
