South Iceland Photo Contest Finalist
South Iceland
South Iceland
The landscape (and the weather) is so variable in Iceland. Beautiful meadows abruptly meet serious slopes and rocky mountains at every turn.
Three tiny bright specks about halfway up the slope right of center are sheep; we continually saw them even higher up these hills and mountainsides.
Icelandic sheep are often found grazing in little clusters of three; typically two newborns and the mother.
9/12 Finalist - T&P

THIS time I had Nikki's words all ready to write, verbatim! Normally I just have to "ditto" her remarks.
