Oh Santorini, the island with two sides. I say this because of its opposite, two different worlds feeling...Read More
Chugging right along on our adventure throughout Greece! Our next stop, Mykonos. It is quite the unique place, it's not like anywhere I have been before. The whole old town center is right by the water too, so if you plan to stay at night you can watch the sunset dip below the sea as you dangle your feet off the balcony of your eatery, and holler for another glass of wine, of course!Read More
We made it out of the city if Athens and onto our next location of Zakynthos. We rented a gorgeous villa in the mountains, the cutest pink color which stuck out amongst the brown hues of the local landscape...Read More
An entire album dedicated to the wild horses of Iceland, which I will continue to add to. There's something about them, these beautiful creatures. <3
An impromptu photo shoot which began with a hike into the southern Seljavellir mountains of Iceland. Following the advice of a local Icelandic boy on how to find a heated geothermal pool not well known to the public.
His directions were to, "Follow the road up highway 1, pass two mountain sides, turn off between two farms, swing a left at the white house, then take a right up the unmarked street. If you feel lost, that's good, keep driving until you see a small walking dirt path. Follow that to the hidden geothermal pool in the mountains." Following his advice, we (my friends and I) stumbled upon one of the most unique locations I have ever been. Talk about an amazing view!
This is Sonora, whom I ran into at the abandoned pool.
Despite the location being stunning on its own, I couldn't resist asking to take her photograph. Valari has an undeniable, natural beauty about her, which was apparent immediately. Her style fit in so well amongst the landscape. Needless to say, I felt inspired!
This was my first attempt at photographing a complete stranger on a whim, and I have to say, it was very invigorating creativity wise! I'm so glad she allowed me to do so, it has definitely sparked a new fire in me! <3
Iceland, a country which stole my heart completely.
Words cannot do it justice, and unfortunately neither will my photographs; but I do hope you enjoy them anyway. It is my intent to eventually blog all of the beauty my friends and I encountered while backpacking through out the country side.
In the mean time, I'll leave you with my first conceptual series; a self portrait taken at one of the most powerful waterfalls, Dettifoss.
Thanks to my friend Angela for assisting me on this idea of a girl in a red dress <3
I can't resist including some scenic photos as well, it was a breath taking view when the sun started to rise again at 4 A.M in the morning. <3
