The Land Of Ice

Hi everyone! I’ve had a few requests to upload some pictures from my recent trip to Iceland and, never one to let down my fans (ahem), I am happy to oblige.

I wasn’t there for as long as I would have liked (when isn’t that the case?), but in my time I came to fall in love with this beautifully rugged and magical country; full of kind and generous people and sights that nowhere else on Earth can offer.

My trip was made even more special by having witnessed the Northern Lights in their full resplendent glory – a stroke of luck bearing in mind how fickle they can be, but the show I witnessed will stay with me for the rest of my life. I also got to see a humpback whale barely 10 metres from the edge of the boat I was on; again a rare sight and one that I will remember with a smile for years to come.

Here are a few pictures of my trip. I’ll be back with the usual film review stuff imminently. Thanks as always for your support of my blog; it means a lot.
