This photograph from the Ice beach sometimes referred to as the Diamond beach in Iceland, was featured in a group show at O’Hanlon Center for the Arts in Mill Valley, California. The show will remain until April 19th.The title of the group show is BLUE. Happy to have this selected. It is printed on metal which gives it a 3D effect.
In the end it is Beauty that will save us. So we must keep something of Beauty in our hearts. We can refer to that Beauty when life becomes difficult or in thanks when it is joyous.
Horses are symbolic of freedom and strength, and Rainbows are symbols of Beauty.
Upon seeing a rainbow, no matter if it is just a part of one or a full-blown double rainbow, it stops us in our tracks and we have no choice but to admire it. The rainbow is illusive, disappearing as quickly as it appeared. So keep that in your heart.
When I see a horse I want to give it a hug for being so magnificent and beautiful.
Horse sense is something a horse has which keeps it from betting on people.
As the Solheimajkull glacier breaks off into sparkling tourquoise and white ice scultures, they create a bay of ice water. This water carries the sculpted ice to the black sand beach known as the diamond beach. The beach is covered with these diamonds, not for sale or for the taking. They are melting, they are for your eyes only to be captured in that moment not to be repeated. This is truely the most amazingly enchanting site I have ever seen. The word beautiful hardly covers it. As I was editing these images that Paul Simon song played in my head.
People say she’s crazy
She got diamonds on the soles of her shoes
Well that’s one way to lose these
Diamonds on the soles of her shoes

And above all, watch with glittering eye the
Whole world around you because the greatest
Secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely
Places. Those who don’t believe in magic will
Never find it.
This is a view from the back of a waterfall in Iceland. The energy here was crackling with negative ions like something I’ve never dreamed of seeing. Iceland has thousands of waterfall gracing its land. It’s truely a water world in all of its forms; glacial, geothermal, rain, rivers, mist,shoreline waves and Ice.
