So winter appears to be over in Toronto and we didn't have much of it at all - almost no snow, no storms, and no ice on the lake. Most people are pretty happy about that of course, but I missed the way winter changes everything, refreshes your view of familiar surroundings. Without that I found myself lacking enthusiasm and inspiration during a sullen November that's lasted four months. I love the changing seasons. I've lived in places where the weather is nice all the time, where it's either hot or wet, and it's too easy to lose myself, nothing marks the passing time and I start to slow down, wind down.

I'll be looking for inspiration in Iceland next month, from everything I've heard it's all around you, all the time. Looking forward to it.

    I couldn't agree more! We had the same kind of winter(lack of) here on the prairies. Enjoy Iceland! I am envious!

    I'm with you, the lack of a true winter is a little disheartening. That being said, I'm jealous of your trip to Iceland, it's on my wishlist of photography destinations. Have fun!

    Iceland is amazing. Its like visiting the moon (if you forget the people).

    Make sure to check out the variety of falls, the first site of Icelandic parliament, and go to small towns. Amazing people.

    But be warned of the showers: it smells like bad eggs cuz of something in the water. I had 45 sec showers during my time there. Just awful smelling (and I know it wasn't me!).
