South Iceland

BetterPhoto.com 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.

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

Congrats on your finalist here Chris! I enjoy the layers in this image and even the little white dots that may be sheep? :~)

Thank you, Aimee! Yes, those 3 white specks up the hillside are in fact sheep!

Receiving an award from Better Photo is just like unwrapping a gift, the thrill is always the same! It is also exciting to be able to send my personal congratulations to each and every one of you and I look forward to seeing the gold though out the galleries. Merna
