Blizzard

While I sort through the many pictures from the Azores and try and organise them into some kind of coherant and meaningful order, I thought with the temperatures unusually for this time of year reaching 80°f outside, I’d dip back into some winter pictures from Iceland.  This one was taken in February 2015..

  3. Lovely to look at but not to be in.

    • Not so bad if you’re wrapped up warm Lou or to just, as in this case, get out of a warm car just to take the photo. Thank you very much for you commet! :-)

  4. Beautiful image, Adrian. I think I prefer not to be in that cold though. :)

    • Thank you Sylvia! It’s a tough job but someone’s got to do it! ;-) I think on balance I too prefer a warmer climate but it is so beautiful in Iceland I’m willing to put up with the cold to capture scenes like this one. :-)

  6. So beautiful in its simplicity!

    • Thank you Laura! Much appreciated! :-)

  7. Just amazing! Love that wall of snow advancing.

    • It was a pretty amazing scene Carol. We were driving north and could see the snow advancing from the sea. It made us a little uncomfortable to be honest as we had quite a few miles yet to drive to reach our accommodation. It was one of those white knuckle drives when the snow reached us but we made it through. Thank you for your comment. :-)

  8. Absolutely gorgeous! Like a serene weil covering me and my ears. I can hear absolutely nothing, as if I’d cotton balls in my ear.

    • Thank you Dina! That silence when the snow is falling heavily is absolutely sublime. Have a fabulous weekend in Norway! :-)

  10. I love it…it is simply, but strong…

    May 13, 2016 at 4:51 pm

    • Thank you very much! :-)

  11. Absolutely poetic.

    • Thank you so much Elena!

  12. I love this one. It leaves much for the imagination to play with.

    May 14, 2016 at 2:25 am

    • Thank you Gunta! It was pretty impressive watching the snow storm make landfall from the sea! :-)

      May 25, 2016 at 7:53 am

  13. Ah, the feeling of a white-out as summer falls upon us ~ very well done Adrian. Looks a little chilly, and something tells me you got swept up in the wind and whiteness…you photographers never learn :-)

    May 14, 2016 at 1:45 pm

    • Thank you very much Randall. It was very cold indeed but like you say, we photographers never learn, I didn’t feel how cold I was until I got back in the car! :-)

      May 25, 2016 at 7:51 am

  14. …and the curtain descends…perfectly done, Adrian!

    May 16, 2016 at 12:47 am

    • Thank you ever so much Lynn! It was a pretty impressive show although a little worrying given we had quite a few miles yet to do to reach our apartment for the night. Visibility descended to near zero but the markers at the edge of the road allow you to keep moving even in white out conditions.

  15. One more of those “empty” images from Iceland that one just have to love. With these images you have really created something special.

    • Thank you very much Otto! I’m so glad you like this series of photographs. As I said to you before, I was a little unsure about posting these but have been so glad that people ‘get’ the pictures.
