Road Trip: 7 Days in South Iceland

I’ve been sifting though photos since we returned from Iceland about two weeks ago, trying to do this amazing country the justice it deserves. Photo editing is a tricky thing — there’s always something that could be tweaked further to more closely match the rich colors that we saw, the vast wilderness that we experienced, or the sheer awe of this country so rightly deserves...

And I couldn't be happier that we did...
