Thanks to @sheen_shells, I decided to try something completely different. I usually prefer light blue and tan pigments. Lately, I haven’t always felt chipper. Sheenah said something simple but absolutely true...”It’s okay to make art that reflects unhappy feelings.” This is layer one of my tumultuous black sand beach. I’ll do one more layer to finish the shoreline. I’m not feeling so down anymore. #stoked 🤗
I recently had the opportunity to travel to outer space with some close pals. It was social distancing and isolation in the extreme, but hey you gotta do what you gotta do ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
(Real location: Iceland, unnamed black sand volcanic beach. Check my story for some behind-the-scenes of this shot!)
I’ve photographed from this beach many times and am always in awe of the power of the sea after it’s long journey around the world but this blue light was a new one for me, both in the middle distance and on the shore itself. Look forward to hearing your words.
@contrastravel hat mich mit einem Beitrag von letzter Woche an dieses wundervolle Erlebnis erinnert 😅
Nichtsahnend standen wir am südlichsten Punkt der Ringstraße in Island und schauten auf den Atlantik hinaus bis uns eine etwas übermütige Welle aus den Gedanken riss 🤷🏻♀️ Meine Füße sind Gott sei Dank trocken geblieben, der Herr hinter mir hatte leider weniger Glück.
Im Übrigen finde ich heute noch in den Popotaschen dieser Hose schwarzen Sand. Jedes Mal ein schöner Reminder an diesen Tag 😊
Habt ihr auch etwas, was euch im Alltag immer wieder an solche Momente erinnert? 👇🏻

Who made this place! #mindblown
Driving over the pass behind us and rolling down into this was the slowest we’ve ever driven. Just trying to absorb what we were seeing. Unreal.

I’ve been busy all afternoon with @organic.vegan.living helping to create MY beautiful, powerful, amazing, custom Orgonite pryamid! Hau’oli la hanau to me 🥳 🎉. I got to put 2 of my favorite sea shells 🐚 that I found right here on the big 👁, and also a bunch of tiny little olivine chunks that I’ve collected since the eruption 🌋. A beautiful Quartz stands in the middle surrounded by black sand, raw carnelian, black tourmaline, blue apetite, amazonite, citrine sitting on a crushed crystal vortex! I’m in 🥰 💕 LOVE 😍 💗 I’m OBSESSED. Its sexy. It’s sleek. It’s perfect it’s just for me! I can feel the POWER radiating from my pyramid already 🌟. Ready to fight off 5g and tons of other negative energies! This baby is getting a special spot on my altar. I am so beyond grateful for this protection in my life right now. 🙏🏽Mahalo nui loa for this beautiful piece of art. Rebecca and Breanna I love you both so so so much! 🙏🏽❤️🌺 🌈
The black sand deserts of Highlands are only accessible for a few months of the year. This is where NASA astronauts practiced before the Apollo mission. In total, 9 of the 12 astronauts who would set foot on the Moon, including Neil Armstrong, trained in Iceland in an environment similar to what they would encounter on the moon.
So if you’re not planning on flying to the moon, perhaps this is the closest thing you can get! You can drive for hours without seeing another person! 👽
On our way out of the Icelandic Highlands the sun decided to shine, just for a second. This panoramic is made of 7 different photos that were all taken right before a rainstorm.
