Driving across central Iceland is like driving nowhere else in the world. Particularly in the dead of winter with a setting sun. Dormant volcanic mounds dot the landscape in every direction. The road the only evidence of man’s existence.
There was a rumor going around when we lived there, that this is where NASA would send it’s astronauts to get a sense of what it would be like on the moon. We believed it!
Out of This World is the current challenge of The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge.
No matter what has transpired, or unfortunately hasn’t transpired during the day, being able to look out the window to witness Mother’s Nature’s closing act on the day brings about a calmness, a serenity like no other for me.
Evenings like this provide a wonderful reminder that no matter how wonderful or how frustrating today was, it was but just one day. Tomorrow the sun will rise again bringing with it another day of new beginnings.
Serene is The Daily Post Weekly Challenge for this week!
Until this challenge I hadn’t appreciated not only does our home in Canada has views of water out the back complete with islands but so does our place in Australia. Albeit one tiny island on the left of the horizon but hey, it’s an island!
Island is the One Word Photo Challenge this week from Jennifer Nichole Wells.
Watching the sun set so behind the islands outside our windows is wonder enough but being spring, the sounds of hummingbirds flying from bush to bush filter through the open window.
Mother Earth, you certainly know how to spoil us. Earth is this week’s travel theme challenge from Where’s My Backpack!
