There is no special significance to this picture, except it is a view of Iceland. It also brings to bear the thought that there are places in this world where just hearing the name of the place I would not want to visit. Iceland sounds absolutely, what else, cold. But names can be deceiving. Take Greenland, now that sounds really pastural, sunny, a place where people sit back in rocking chairs napping in between cups of tea. Wrong! Greenland is cold and bleak, not so nice a place to be. Try to figure.

Hey, your own daughter plans to go to Iceland on her honeymoon, whenever we get around to taking it! :) Iceland is NOT cold; it's moderate year round because of the ocean current. And a beautiful place! Northern lights, whale watching, volcanoes, etc.
