You might wonder about this image. Please look at the image for a couple of minutes and try to find all the opposites.

  • nature vs. man-made structures
  • high on the hill vs. low at sea-level
  • bright water vs. dark stone
  • soft water vs. hard stone
  • sky vs. earth
  • foreground vs. background
  • heal nature vs. ruined house
  • full foreground vs. empty background
  • water in the clouds vs. water in the sea

I guess you can find a couple of more opposites in it. Share them with us and write them in the comments below!

Travel Tuesday: Sheep? Sheep!

While preparing for my first trip to Iceland, I was told the landscape of the Isle of Skye in the north-west of Scotland is quite similar to Iceland. And I have to admit, those people were right. Not only the untamed landscape, low bushes, and sparse ground covering, it’s also the huge amount of rock laying around everywhere and the free-running sheep. Only the colors are different: in Iceland, the rocks are black instead of gray and the ground covering has a very intense green which looks a bit unreal.

Take care!

Iceland is the land of elves and trolls. So, it’s no wonder why this iconic shaped rock is also called elf church. On the map, you can find it by the name L√≥ndrangar at the south-western coast of the¬†Sn√¶fellsnes peninsula.
