  • The first thing I saw this morning when I went into email was the National Geographic Photo of the Month. Iceland!

    I immediately thought about the Beauty of the posts by Bjorn and Bergthor...both in their images and in their stories. Because of their posts, I have noticed a 'longing' or Iceland...even though I've never been there.

    This image is beautiful but, to me, not so compelling as Bjorn's and Bergthor's images. It is from an article that will appear in the May issue of National Geographic. It's called "Iceland's Resilient Beauty."

    Resilient beauty indeed! Thank you so much!

    ...BTW, I so appreciate what both of you are posting but could figure out how to directly dedicate to only one of you...
