Life

This is one of my favorite pictures. From our trip to Iceland in 2007.

It’s a metaphor for life, really.

  • reminds me of poem from Robert Frost.

    “But i have promises to keep,
    and Miles to go before i sleep,
    and Miles to go before i sleep”.

    One of my favorite places. Want to buy a little cottage there with me, a little escape place? I'm only half-joking…I really loved it there!

  • fantastic! i love the depth of perspective, in more ways than one.

  • Never thought of that… but I can see it too, now.

  • I would if the weather was better. They only have 2 months of warm weather!! Plus it is insanely expensive. And I would stick out just a bit (you would fit right in though). 🙂

    But I agree – very lovely. I only saw very little of it. Need to go back for sure.

  • Thanks Kate! And thanks for visiting 🙂

    Actually it’s really cheap now. Iceland went bankrupt due to its implicit guarantees of its banking system (and you thought the US had problems with the bottomless hole called AIG?).

    $1 + assumed debt should cover the entire country!

  • That's a great picture.

    And the Robert Frost poem is so apt…

    (It would not be fun to have a car break down around this area, i cant help thinking)

  • Awesome shot 🙂

  • I like this picture!!!! I kept staring at it for long…and then realised that I had to comment!
    It does resemble the curves in life..and the emptiness of the road resembles all of us individuals–no matter how me surround ourselves with , we are alone in so many ways!

    Probably because it's trying to stop people from copying the image!

    Not that it works… at all.

    Love the pic btw ^_^

    Think I'll make it my desktop background.

  • Lol – you are so lame, you can't take a good picture. You just have to resort to theft.

    Pathetic.
