Basilica Santa Maria Della Salute

After finding this spot during the day, and getting some pictures at sunset (HERE), I came back early in the morning to capture the sunrise over the beautiful Basilica Santa Maria Della Salute in Venice.

I set up my tripod, found a great composition and wait for the sun to rise.
As it was moving over the horizon, coloring the poles of the pier with a golden light, I was lucky enough to catch its reflection in one of the iron prow-head of a gondola.

The flooded Stairs

As a photographer, you sometimes have to venture out the main roads to grab a nice picture.
On my short stay in Plitivice National Park, one of the path was closed due to high water level.
I still went ahead in the closed path and the trail was actually flooded by the waterfall. Some part of it had even collapsed under the water.
In spite of that, I choose to continue on my way, being really careful. I pulled up my pants and soaked my shoes in the cold water.
Here is the way down!

The Doll house

This is one of the many isolated houses that you can encounter when driving around Iceland.
I really like this picture, the moss covered lava field in the foreground, the colored house and the waterfall in the back. I wonder how it would be to actually live here, far from anything else.

Snæfellsnes Fjords

Between two car rentals, I had few spare days. So I decided to hitchhike to the Snæfellsnes peninsula.

Finding a ride was pretty easy, and in less than an hour I was with two nice girls on my way to a small fisherman village called Grundarfjörður.

The fact is the sky had other plans. As soon as we arrived, it began pouring and it didn’t stop for the last 36 hours!

My 2 nights 2 days can be resumed as followed :

Deserted camp site, pouring rain, leaking tent, furious wind, Chinese noodles, pouring rain, lemon tea…

I spend the next 36 hours alone in my tent, bored to death with nothing to do than trying to sleep…
As soon as the sun came back, I packed my stuff and headed back to the Capital, longing for a bed, a shower and some dry shoes!
I did took the time to take this picture :

Öxarárfoss

I went hiking in Þingvellir around midnight, the sun was down but as it didn’t go far below the horizon, there Was still enough light to hang around. The park was so beautiful in the dim light, I walked for an hour in the cracked belly of earth, where the North American and Eurasian Plate drift apart.
The trail led me to Öxarárfoss waterfall where I took this long exposure.
