I feel extremely fortunate to have had the opportunity to spend a week with a small group of highly motivated and talented photographers in Iceland. As we traveled with our delightful new friends from Focus on Nature, we were forever changed by the landscape, the people and their culture. It was a truly unique and inspiring experience and although I am not sure that I was able to capture it’s immeasurable beauty, I thought I would post some of what I observed in the next few days. I’m definitely planning on returning again next year and hope that some of you will join me.

    Amazing how your photographs have a different style from all the others.
    They are very strong and very beautiful. Would love to see them slightly larger to really see the photo with all its details. Lovely work Julieanne. Keep on photographing.

    Saluu Jeanne

    My daughter just got back two weeks ago from a photoshoot. Free People (freepeople.com) was shooting their catalog there. The shots that she sent back are incredible. I will be forever jealous. She did mention the persistent smell of sulfur however.
