View of Reykjavik from Perlan, Iceland

ICELAND

Photographs from my short trip to Iceland, exploring the world’s northernmost capital city of Reykjavik, from the colourful houses and the vibrant old harbour, to the lively Tjornin lake and landmark Hallgrimskirkja church. Venturing beyond the city, we embarked on the Golden Circle tour, stopping at the historic Thingvellir National Park, the geysirs and hot springs at Haukadalu geothermal fields, and one of Iceland’s iconic waterfalls, Gullfoss. We finished our trip with a last chance hunt for the Northern Lights during another cloudy night, followed by a relaxing morning in the warm soothing waters of the Blue Lagoon.

The first card (left) was completed in 2010, and it depicts ‘The Presentation of the Child Jesus in the Temple’. The second card (middle) was completed in 2015, and it depicts ‘The Nativity’. The third card (right) was completed in 2016, and it depicts ‘The Flight into Egypt’.
