  1. Good Morning,

    There's nothing wrong with your camera or TV set.....so they say. It's like any other day. You grab your camera and go into the woods. It's familiar, but something has changed. Some things are here but others are missing, as if left on a table in the distant past, yet you remember. You step lightly and look for friends. When you find them their names are changed and their faces look like pictures in boxes, like the frames of a photographer's uneasy dreamscape. PARAGRAPH They leave notes in the wilderness and tell you where they've been, and then you don't feel so alone. It's an ISO 100 sky with the canopy closing in. The ferns are like giants as you get smaller. You can't help but wonder if the terrain ahead is rocky. Maybe there is a cool stream in a clearing with smooth water. For now, all is deep in the tangled understory with the messy rabbit hole full of photos close by.

It feels like the Twilight Zone, but you can relax because you're in the familiar and comforting place known as Monday in Nature.

  14. MaryDooBlueLagoon.jpg This is part of the famous Blue Lagoon of Iceland. I was blown away by the amount of lava rocks in Iceland. - Volcano country it is. The Blue Lagoon is in a huge lava field. You can see in this image that this huge bed of lava rocks is covered by a layer of green moss. The warm "blue" waters are rich in mineral such as silica and sulfur, so bathing in the Blue Lagoon is supposed to help beautify the skin.
