A (long overdue) Postcard From Ladakh

In News & Stuff, Travel by David35 Comments

Hi folks. Wow, two weeks and not a peep from me. Sorry about that. Ladakh is pretty remote and we were on the road enough that getting to an internet cafe to test my chances at a connection just never happened. But man I love Ladakh. We barely made it out of Leh this morning with an incoming weather front …

September 2010 Wallpapers – Updated

In Travel, Wallpapers by David15 Comments

September wallpapers are here, in both 2560×1600 and 1280×853. *The first versions I posted gave you one extra day, which is good for some but confusing the rest of the world. They’re fixed now. I shot this in Iceland in the driving rain, with a 24mm/3.5 tilt/shift lens. So struck by the vastness of space in Iceland, and the almost …

Me. Shooting in the driving rain in Iceland. Cold. Wet. Deliriously happy. I’ve never shot in the rain, drizzle, dew, fog, and general “water coming out of the sky in every possible form” as much as I did in Iceland the last couple weeks. There were days my boots were so wet I thought they’d never recover – they were …

In GEAR, Travel by David34 Comments

Within a stone’s throw of the Arctic Circle in Iceland. Photo: Dave Delnea It’s been a while since an unapologetic gear post but I need to get this out there. I love the Gitzo fleece jacket. It’s not right for a guy to love a jacket this much, much less a jacket that raises my nerd factor to 11. Hell, …

Coming Home

In Travel by David34 Comments

Dave Delnea on the rocks in Iceland. (Somewhere Northeast-ish to be more specific.) Last night in Reykjavik. This is an amazing little city. I think from now on when people ask my favourite city, it’s going to be hard not to tell them it’s Reykjavic. We’re heading out to have one last meal and I found a place that serves …
