Here’s the next set of random images from my September trip to Iceland. This group highlights some of the mossy terrain we encountered throughout the trip. There were lava rocks everywhere, often covered with bright green moss. Walking on it was fun … like being in a ‘moon bounce’. I think you’ll get a sense for Iceland’s cloudy, rainy weather here. Although it was mostly unwanted, it really brought out the greens in the landscape. On our eighth day we woke up to a fresh coating of snow in the high elevations, and sunrise in the opposite direction, lit up the clouds and mountain peaks in deep pink. Signs of fall were displayed in the grasses and low bushes, with yellows and oranges mingling in. In the weeks leading up to the trip I was following the volcano news, afraid of the threat that Bardarbunga might explode, spewing gray ash on the landscape. I’m so very thankful that did not happen so I was able to experience Iceland’s beautiful and diverse colors.
There’s more photos to come, I just need to find the time to process them. To see the previous Iceland posts click on ‘Denise Bush’s Photo Blog’ at the top and scroll down.

Breathtaking – all of them. My favorites are Pink Morning – a very unique shot, and High Peaks. And of course, I love the lonely sheep!
Thanks Season. Yes, maybe I should have named it ‘Lonely Sheep’ … it looks so cold and alone out there in the wind.
Excellent work, Denise. Thanks for the post!
Thanks very much Robin. Nice to hear from you!
These images are absolutely stunning. I love the natural light in them as well. Nice post.
Hi! Thanks so much for taking the time to come look, and leave a nice comment too. I’m glad you like them.
Excellent work,Denise. You did a great job with scenes and lighting that we saw those days. I look forward to your next set.
Thanks Ken … you are always so kind. It’s one of the things I really like about you! 🙂
Love em Denise (4 of them look VERY familiar) 🙂
OK … the sheep, path, shack and reflection. Can’t wait to see your versions! XO
I think I could live with all that beauty. Stunning. Pink morning is outstanding but I would like to walk up that Rock Garden Path.
Let’s get our men to agree to move there. They can start a sheep farm and we’ll go out and shoot all day!
Pink morning is a super special photo!
Thank you! I’m glad you like it. I like hearing which images appeal to people.
What beautiful rugged country, thanks for sharing.
It is! … rugged, wide open and unspoiled. Thanks Sharon!
Another beautiful series.
Thank you Robert … I am getting there. And, I intend to visit your blog soon to see your latest.
A gorgeous location beautifully captured
Thanks so much for looking and your kind comment.
These are fabulous but Sheep in the Wind gets the prize. Pink Morning is a prizewinner too. Kudos.
Thanks Andrew. I think someone else said those were their favorites too. Good to know!!!
These are stunning!!
Thank you Kathleen. I only got to see you briefly at the club meeting. 😦 You look wonderful BTW.
A very interesting post and, of course, lovely photos. Thank you.
Thank YOU Isabel!
I’m loving this series, the images are breathtaking. It is somewhere I would love to visit. Looking forward to the next post 🙂
Thanks very much Lisa. You should definitely visit Iceland … and especially if you love landscape photography!
Denise, I woke up early today planning to read the paper before my hectic got going. Doing a quick check of my emails I found your recent blog posting. It is now 1 1/2 hours later. I just spent a wonderful time visiting your world and your absolutely fantastic eye for capturing moments in time, with precision and lighting. I miss you my friend. Looking forward to seeing you soon. You are an incredible artist, Denise!! I love you!!!

Oh my gosh … your thoughtfulness is making me cry … in a good way. Thank you so much for taking the time to look and comment. I miss you and am happy I will see you soon. Love you too … always.
Great shots! My favorites are Volcanic Remains and Pink Morning.
Thank you for taking the time from your busy schedule to come look and comment! 🙂
You continue to bring Iceland to life with your images. I still find it difficult to pick a favorite, although I keep going back to “Volcanic Remains” and “Pink Morning”. The images in your 3 posts all sort of work as a set and are beautiful components used to assemble an amazing landscape. Will there be an Iceland IV?
Thanks Rich! Yes I still have more to come. I am torn between getting my December Remnants & Remains exhibit together and finishing up Iceland.
Pink Morning would make me glad I got up.
Thanks for the visit!
‘High Peaks Reflection’ and ‘Pink Morning’ are stunning! I’m so looking forward to your next series. 🙂
Thanks so much Beth! The next set is ready for viewing!
