House on the Beach in Iceland

House on the Beach in Iceland

I’m back at it again. I finished my first program of volunteering in Reykjavik and I have a few days to myself to rest, relax, and process some images. This shot is located only a half kilometer from the volunteer house I stayed at in Reykjavik. You don’t have to go far to find beautiful locations in Iceland. I could not think of any better name for this image than House on the Beach in Iceland.

The image required only minor tweaking in Adobe Lightroom. I increased the shadows to bring out the details in the rocks in the foreground. Blacks were brought down to increase the contrast, and vibrance is only slightly boosted. Thats it! Sometimes it’s a drag to carry a tripod everywhere I go especially as I live out of a backpack. However for images like this I sure appreciate having it available and I will not give it up.

Growing up one of my biggest dreams was to explore the world. Honestly I never thought this would become reality. But at the end of 2014 I quit my job as a project manager to do just that. I sold most everything I own, packed up the remaining boxes in storage, and set out to see the world. My goals while traveling are to meet people everywhere I go, work on becoming a better photographer, and attempt to stay where the weather is not freezing. Along the way I am posting photos at and writing about my experiences at
