Put Iceland, Cold but Seething Hot, on Your 2013 Anxiety Barometer

This headline is from the NY Times television section reporting on a PBS Nova series detailing the instability of Iceland's volcanoes. Having just dodged the "Mayan predicted" apocalypse, we are now given something else to worry about. Interestingly, Iceland is one of the "hot" photographic destinations currently, with numerous picture taking trips being offered. And I have seen some truly breath taking photos from Iceland. But I also have some pretty good views right out my door. This image was taken within 15 minutes of getting out of bed. As I looked out I could see the great color emerging and knew that I could get the picture if I hurried. I started to go out in my robe but early morning traffic across Red Bridge suggested otherwise, plus it was 8 degrees. Tamron [email protected], 5 shot HDR, +/- 2 ev from 1/2s, f25.

This is beautiful. You can literally hear the quietness.

With a sunrise like that I would get out of bed early, too! What an inspiring way to start your day. I hope Claire is an early riser too, with you setting up tripods and cameras and clunking around :)
