STS member Geoff submitted this photo and shares with us the story behind it:
This photo was taken on my first solo trip after my wife died of pancreatic cancer. On her deathbed she implored me to keep traveling. I was at Reynisdrangar, Reynisfjara Beach near Vik in Iceland. I was a bit nervous about launching my new drone but went up the beach away from the crowds and put it straight out to sea. The view from the drone exceeded my expectations. A few people approached me to see what I was doing and were captivated by the different perspective the drone gave. Truly a holiday to remember. My late wife would have loved it. I continue to travel on my own but wish she was with me.
A natural steam pillar rising up from under ground makes a dramatic black and white photo. This pic was shared with us by STS member Jonne following his solo trip to Iceland.
