As Bilbo Baggins Once Said – “I Think It’s Time For Another Adventure!”

I’m one photography class and one writing class away from my flight to Iceland. It’s been about a month wait for this trip, and I have to say it actually went by faster than you’d think. I probably have you to thank for that, if you’re currently taking the time to read this, because a lot of my free time is spent surfing WordPress sites, replying to comments, and writing new posts. I enjoy this greatly, so thank you.

They call Iceland the “land where you can witness the constant battle between fire and ice,” and for a good reason. Located directly on top of the Mid-Atlantic Rift (which is slowly splitting the country apart), directly below the Arctic Circle (which adds to cold temperatures and allows for many spectacular glaciers), and having more than twenty-four active volcanoes (the last to erupt, as we all remember, was April 2010), it is an understatement to say that the land is geologically diverse. There is wilderness covered by ice, lava-fields, hot springs, meadows, lakes, and waterfalls, all of which combine to create what should be a spectacular location for an adventure. For a much more extensive list of facts and reason why I’ve decided to go to Iceland, please click here.

I’ve been looking forward to visiting Iceland for two years now, and I hope you will join me via this blog as I post photographs and stories about my experiences while I’m abroad. One of the first adventures I have planned is to climb Mt. Eyjafjallajökull (the volcano that erupted last year) which involves going across glaciers, lava-fields, and glacial rivers just to get there. We’ll see what happens from there.

Author: Nathan Bush Wedding Photography

My name is Nathan Bush and I am a loving husband, an avid world traveler, an adventurer, and an off-road and Jeep enthusiast. I began my serious journey into photography in the mountains of Patagonia Argentina where I fell in love with the wilderness world. My passion has taken me to Iceland, Alaska, Peru, Argentina, Belgium, the Netherlands, and countless National Parks.  A good friend once told me I should combine my knack for beautiful landscape photography with capturing the details of their wedding, so I decided to dive right into the challenge. It has been quite a ride from there, and thus today, my passion for photography has evolved to capturing the raw candid emotion and intimate moments involved in wedding photography.

  1. I’m looking forward to following along on your blog as you explore Iceland. Iceland is near the top of my list of places I want to visit in the next few years.

    1. After just 5 hours of being in the country I’d say it is the most bizarre place I have ever been. For that reason, I absolutely love it so far!
