8/7/08 Helicopter over Iceland
My trip to Iceland was filled with surprises each day and this day was no exception. I woke up to learn that I'd have the opportunity to fly over Iceland in a helicopter without the doors attached. At first I was a bit apprehensive but the excitement of photographing this incredible landscape soon took over and I was one in the first group to go up. Once I got over how fidget it was without the doors I didn't want to come down. The landscape is so overwhelmingly beautiful and the colors unreal. I took one body and one lens along with a hooded jacket and heavy gloves. I soon learned I couldn't shoot with the gloves on but it was worth my fingers freezing to get these shots. I only wish I could have stayed up longer and traveled all over Iceland this way.
