In this festive season I would like to wish you all Happy Holidays :heart: Super happy here with a dream vacation in the works, thanks to my generous mother who accumulated a whole lot of frequent flyer miles on her travels. Enough to go anywhere in the world, the further the better so I said let's go to New Zealand! 

Unfortunately that didn't work out for the time I wanted to go in April-May with fall foliage in the Southern hemisphere, all because Easter gets in the way :( (Sad) So tremendously sad for a beautiful country that's become synonymous with Lord of the Rings, oh well... but I pitched the idea of Iceland which ranks further up on my bucket list of places to visit and bingo! Will be spending a couple weeks there in May =D (Big Grin)

At this point, any & all suggestions of places to visit in Iceland are greatly welcome. Especially from the viewpoint of a person who loves landscapes & long exposure waterfalls, I imagine this trip will be one for the ages ripe with scenes ripped straight of out fantasy. With plans to release my photos as stock if that gives you more incentive to help me out for places visit :) (Smile)

Anyways, thank you very much for your continued support. Be it a simple fave, comment or premium stock download, every little bit keeps me motivated in pursuing the creative arts. I would like to return the favour by featuring a mix of deviations inspired from recent faves and photos from Iceland.
