Model on Ice

Nude, Iceland, 2014

I’m continuing now with my photos of Rebecca Tun in Iceland in 2014.  In my last post from that trip (click here), we had not yet crossed the great black nothingness of the Skeiðarársandur flood plain, but for these new photos we had, moving into an area with no large settlements but plenty of large glaciers.
The area where we went to photograph, trying to get away from a touristy crowd, was by the shore of a glacial lake.  The large glacier was on the other side of the lake, but on our side some small icebergs had washed up on the shore.

Rebecca was accompanied on this part of the trip by a friend, so I said to her traveling companion standing next to me, in a voice loud enough for Rebecca to hear, “Do you think I should ask Rebecca if she wants to get onto the iceberg”?  Before her friend could answer, Rebecca said to me emphatically, “Yes!”   So, I turned to her and asked directly, “Do you want to get on the iceberg?”  Once again, my question was answered by an emphatic “Yes!”

Modeling nude in a place like Iceland can be arduous work, so it’s always good to have a model like Rebecca who is willing to go a step further (or more) to try to create a good photograph.

In other news, it’s been a while again since my last post, but for this I have a reason:  my website went down suddenly, and I have been spending most of my free time recently creating a newer, better site.
In a way this is a good thing, as my website had had problems and as such I had really not updated it for several years, so I had been wanting to create a new one, anyway.  Hopefully it will be finished in a week or two (I still have a lot of photos to go through and edit), so be ready to see something new.
