    Beautiful portraits (second photo in particular). I truly admire the lighting and the extraordinarily pleasant bokeh in that close-up. Well done!ReplyCancel

      Thank you, Bob. The bokeh wasn’t as pleasant in the capture; I enhanced it in post-processing.ReplyCancel

Bárður’s valley.

This long and narrow valley in north Iceland spans 30 miles and takes its name after the first settler Gnúpa-Bárður. The glacial river Skjálfandafljót runs through, punctuating its flow in two of the most beautiful waterfalls in Iceland, namely, Aldeyjarfoss and Goðafoss.

Some of the world’s finest woollen sweaters are made in Bárðardalur, hand knit with their signature Icelandic patterns by the ladies at the farms.

    Hi Rajan: Beautiful serenity in shades of rose! I’d like to nominate this one for a large print to be hung where everyone can see and admire it. – BobReplyCancel
