Iceland Bound

 

The blog has been a little quieter than we would like, so an update is overdue. We finished another fantastic year making images and leading photography tours with a week in Iceland being our last tour of the year. The image above was shot at Oxararfoss in Thingvellir National Park in Iceland.

December was a bit on the warm side for Iceland and as a result there had been no snow. The only disappointment was the Ice Caves were flooded due to warm temperatures and rain. But as a result of the warmer temperatures the glacier lagoon was not frozen and we had lots of ice chunks on the black sand beach. So Mother Nature took one thing from us but gave us another.

We leave again in a couple of days for another week in Iceland. What a great way to end one year and start another!

West Virginia Wrap Up

A couple weeks ago we finished our West Virginia Fall Color Tour. This makes the 3rd year in a row we have had the pleasure of sharing one of our favorite fall color locations with our clients! As usual West Virginia did not disappoint. This year the mid-Atlantic was being blasted by heavy rains and some of our clients were questioning if we should cancel. Our research suggested that West Virginia would be on the outer limits of this storm and we felt this could possibly make for some great photography. As a practice we try not to shy away from bad weather. While the safety of our clients is always upmost in our mind, we also want them to go home with epic images!

This fall we were treated to beautiful color, nicely flowing waterfalls, great clouds, and even a nice rainbow over Blackwater Canyon.

We are skipping fall color in West Virginia next year in favor of Fall Color in the Finger Lakes Region of New York. But our Meetup is planning on doing what is fast becoming our annual camping and star party trip to Spruce Knob and hopefully we will find time to perhaps put a waterfall weekend on the calendar next spring. If you want to keep up with all things Road Runner, please join our Meetup or our Mailing List( on the right side of this page).

Iceland Awaits

After almost a year of planning, Denise and I are soon to head back to one of our favorite places on the planet! We are leading a group of photographers on a tour of what we think are the best locations in Iceland. While we have seen much of what Iceland has to offer during our previous trips and tours, we know that much more remains to be discovered. So we are spending 5 days exploring the north of Iceland before our group arrives.

The photo above was taken in the Westfjords at a waterfall called Dynjandi. It’s a beautiful and stunningly large waterfall in a very remote location.

Win a Trip!!

Since the inception of Road Runner Photography Tours we have frequently raffled spots on some of our tours. This May however, we are doing something we have never done and frankly have never seen anyone else do either.  We are planning a weekend photo tour in one of our favorite areas of West Virginia and the only way you can attend is to win a spot on the tour.  That’s right, every spot on the tour will be given away to randomly selected winners.

If you want to enter for a chance to win one of the 6 spots on the tour you need to head over to this page;  www.RoadRunnerPhotographyTours.com

If you want to increase your chances of winning a spot on the tour it’s easy.  You just need to share the custom link that will be made available to you after you enter.  You can share this link with friends directly via email or you can use the buttons to post the link on your favorite social media site.   Each time someone enters using your link, you will get an extra entry into the contest as well.

Let’s just imagine for a moment, that you don’t want to win. I know I’m having trouble imagining that you would not want to win.  But you can still help your friends win by registering and sharing the link with your photo friends.  Imagine how grateful they would be if they won a spot because of your help!

Full details are available on the contest page.

 

 

Returning to Ricketts

RickettsPano This weekend we are going back to a favorite springtime location, Ricketts Glen State Park. This park has one of the best displays of waterfalls in the Mid-Atlantic region and, as Pennsylvania emerges from a long cold winter, the streams are full and the leaves are freshly green.
