Iceland Meets the Wind Off the Sun

I swear, Iceland is alive.

The late season light changes so quickly that the flow of gravity and time across space, and your body, are one. Only the photograph is still. Try opening the image in a new window. I think some of that directional energy and movement is captured in it, especially when seen a bit larger than here.


Either that, or confronting elemental nature makes a human alive.

They have come together again, in beauty.


In mystery.p1320457

And in wonder.p1320459

This is the glory of the world.p1320458

Its moods are 50,000 years in the making.


They are not human moods.

Even the darkness is light.

You can see by it.


You have only a few minutes.
