Living the Scientific Life (Scientist, Interrupted)

By the River

By the river Fnjoska, in Fnjoskardalur, Northern Iceland.

When I was a kid, I always wanted to go to Iceland. I’ve never managed that (nor have I traveled anywhere outside of North America, except to Japan, twice), but after looking at this amazing photo collection, I can already feel my wanderlust gripping me once again.

As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words. If you were to write a thousand words (or even just one haiku) about this picture, what would you write?

    It is Day 1 of Training Campso there should be a Bear in the river eating a Viking in this picture! Vikings suck – Go Bears!

    Sky, mountain, river.
    Liquid rock rises beneath
    Peaceful illusion.

    Everybody I know that has been to Iceland can’t say enough to describe it’s beauty. If I could afford to go I would as well. Good luck on your journey there, I hope you get the chance.

    Silence descended
    When scene captured on film
    Lost sound of water
    Beautiful, but lessened.
