Iceland, June 3, 2003. Click on any image to load larger image and start slide show. [Narrative]
Here's my portable solar observatory, Canon 1D camera, 100-400 lens with 1.4x extender, solar filter rubber-banded to the front of the lens. Also note the hand-held solar filter sticking out of camera bag. Never look at the sun without protection! Here I can barely contain my excitement as I get ready to explore the wide-open spaces of Iceland. My car. Note the rental company sticker on the door. They used to do that in Florida to help criminals identify robbery victims, but in Iceland I think they do it to warn the locals that the driver is likely to do something stupid like stopping suddenly in the middle of the road to take a picture of a duck. Not all vehicles in Iceland are tiny. This VW is about the size of a tire on some of the SUVs I saw. Two things about this shot from Grimsey: The wind sock is standing straight out, and there are birds everywhere. Reykjavík parks: No dogs!
