I have been travelling in various places in Iceland recently and looking at the striking colours of summer. They differ. In Þórsmörk, a valley surrounded by 3 glaciers the colours were striking. There was grey, masses of grey as there was an volcanic eruption in the area 2 years ago. But the colours that caught my eyes was the green, the fresh singing green of early summer and yellow in big portions being flattered by violet and purple. And greenish yellow in all that fantastic symphony. This means I have got an idea for my next piece. I want to tell the story of summer. Unfortunately I didn't bring the camera along as I never bring a camera along when I work as a guide. Perhaps a silly whim of mine, certainly feels like that now.
