My Iceland Photographic Adventure

Terry White in Iceland

I just spent a week in Iceland on a photographic adventure

Many of you know that I started my Adobe 20th Anniversary sabbatical on August 1st and if you would have asked me on August 1st did I have any big trips planned I would have said no. This was going to be more of a staycation. However, I got the chance to go to Iceland at the last minute. It was AMAZING! There’s just no way that I can do this story justice by posting the images and text here, so I decided to the next best thing and that is to tell my story with Adobe Spark Page which you can view below (just click and start scrolling):

I would say that this was a once in a lifetime trip, but I won’t because I have a feeling that I’ll go back and shoot some more. Iceland is amazing. If you get the chance to go there, take it! Special shoutout to Scott Kelby, Einar Eriendsson and Ragnar Og Ásdís for making this the perfect trip. I hope to do a workshop soon in Iceland with Einar.

About the gear I took to Iceland

This was a photographic trip, so the gear was important. I didn’t really call it out in the Spark Page above, so I’ll do so here as an added bonus to my blog readers:

    Terry – GREAT shots from both you and Scott. Iceland hasn’t been on my list, but after seeing the images from your trip…I think I might add it! Thanks (and I hope you’re enjoying your sabbatical…I had one of my own 15 years ago and really enjoyed it).

    Terry, great shots. How did you get a spark page to open up on your own website instead of going there in a separate tab completely. I use smugmug so not sure whether that’s possible. Thanks

  • Awesome shots from both you and Scott. Iceland hasn’t been on my rundown, True Essay Help yet in the wake of seeing the pictures from your trip…I think I may include it! Much obliged (and I trust you’re making the most of your sabbatical…I had one of my own 15 years back and truly delighted in it).
