Stokksnes 9 a.m. (II) by Carlosmacr

When i traveled 2 years ago to Iceland, there was one night when i didn’t plan anything special, as the place where we were sleeping was still far from the Jokulsarlon and travelling with family was not the perfect time to drive alone 200 km during the night. So i when driving to the hostel i saw in the road a sign where written Stokksnes. So next day, before sunrise i drove to that place which i though was very unknown as i had not read anything about it before the trip. ūüôā Once there i was completely alone and the place really amazing. When i finished the trip and came back home i could see that i was completely wrong as i started to see in 500px, almost everyday, a shot from this location. I am happy i decided in the last minute to visit this fantastic location, not far from the city where we were sleeping, in H√∂fn. Just wonder what would be if i had came to this place in the night, when we could see clear northern lights from H√∂fn ūüôā

Thanks for your visits and wish you all a nice weekend

—————————————————————————————————-

Cuando visit√© hace dos a√Īos Islandia con mi familia llevaba todo muy planeado. Todo salvo la noche o el amanecer de la noche que pasariamos en H√∂fn. Al ir con familia me daba cosa conducir solo hasta Jokulsarlon durante la noche, ya que estaba a cierta distancia. Pero conduciendo de camino a H√∂fn vi unos km antes una indicaci√≥n a Stokksmes, lo que pensaba que ser√≠a una localizaci√≥n poco conocida.
Me fui para all√° al amanecer y no encontr√© a nadie, por lo que me reafirm√© en que era un sitio desconocido, lo cual me extra√Īaba por la belleza del lugar.
Al volver de viaje me di cuenta de que estaba completamente equivocado. Aunque no fuera una de las paradas típicas para los turistas, estaba claro que sí lo era para muchos fotógrafos, pues raro era el dia en que no veía en 500px una foto del lugar. :-))

Sólo me preguntó lo bonito que podría haber sido de haber visitado el lugar pocas horas antes, de noche, ya que esa misma noche pudimos ver en Höfn, pese a haber cierta contaminación lumínica, las auroras boreales.
Gracias por tu visita y que pasen todos un buen fin de semana ūüôā

Beauty Through Order by MarselvanOosten

Wishing you all a happy 2015. May all your troubles last as long as your New Year’s resolutions ūüėČ

And if this morning is any indication for the rest of the year, I’d say: bring it on! I got an email from Nature’s Best telling me that my image ‘Red Crowned Cranes’ won a Highly Honored in the Birds (those who know me will appreciate the irony) category of the competition. It was shot last year on our White & Wild Japan photo tour. Only 110 images were selected from over 20,000 entries, so I’m honored to be part of the happy few again.
The winning images will be displayed in the annual exhibition at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History in Washington D.C. opening in Fall 2015.
