A few shots from February’s journey to Iceland and Greenland.
When I’m not worrying about the state of the world we live in, there’s a lot to appreciate…
From the Ice Hotel in Kiruna, Sweden to Abisko Sky Station (also Sweden), the fjords of Tromso, Norway and then down to Oslo. A contrarian’s concept of an ideal break from winter in Vermont! No aurora borealis, I’m afraid, but gorgeous all the same. Accompanied by jazz and Bach. Enjoy!
Most complain a lot about the cold of the New England. I think it’s a trick, like Br’er Rabbit saying,”Don’t throw me in the briar patch,” when that’s really where he wanted to be thrown. Only in this case the idea is to make people think it’s too cold to be comfortable so they won’t overcrowd the place. It’s nice and warm inside, and that’s where you are most of that time!
But the with the cold there are some awesome transformations of the landscape. After seeing our corner of Vermont ravished by Tropical Storm Irene, the cold of this winter has brought a transformation of the landscape of a different, quite marvelous sort.
