    Looking through my files I found the Negs of the trip to ICELAND with the Pentax Club of Great Britain as organised by Peter & Liz Cox. I had used the original 'Ilford XP1' chromogenic film. Camera was an ME Super + SMC Pentax-M 28mm f2.8 with yellow filter. I liked the 'Vastness' of the Landscape.

    Wow - you'd be hard pressed to get a photo of Gulfoss these days with only one person in!

    a NOTE' from Mick on Photrio Forum about the 'White Houses' one ----

    Home to their parliament.

    You photographed this standing on one continent looking to the hills in the background which are another continent. In-between and below you, is a sort of no man's land as the two continents drift apart.

    From memory, three of those houses are the Prime Minister's summer residence. Not sure if it the first three or the last three.

    Most wonderful place. and a very nice depiction, beautifully framed. Looks like early to mid afternoon, going on the shadow.

    He's spot on - and no, I can't remember which houses it is either.

    We had a good laugh when we were there as the traffic cones coning something off were made in Oxford!
