Long is the way we cycled, yet long is the way we're still gonna cycle - the dust in my ears, eyes, lips and mouth, hair and hands, remind me of that long way we cycled today, and the day before and the day before that, that dust we breath, taste and smell, which covers the bikes now, which is the very desert itself, the very ground itself, the permanent mark of mother Nature - but at any rate can I read on your face that in the pain of the cycling, in the wind and under the rain, in the dry desert as on the weat cost, you're happy to live that, to experience that, and I'm happy as well. You're my best friend.

Nice shot, I like how the subject is placed to the side so we can see how barron parts of Iceland are. Glad to see your still riding.

Iceland can certainly mislead from its green (at least half of the year) coastlines and plentiful waterfalls. We forget about the barren interior of the island that is so inhospitable that nothing of consequence lives there. Great shot. The winding road snaking through the frame really illustrates the distance you've traveled and gives a sense of scale to the emptiness.

One suggestion: the horizon appears to be tilted too far to the right; a slight rotation in Photoshop will return the land to an even keel.
