17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Moon road

50 years since men landed on the Moon this is the closest I get to the lunar landscape. Apollo Astronauts were training here before their flight to the Moon. Volcanic craters in central highlands of Iceland with the only colour provided by bright red of scoria at their rims caused by the oxidation of the iron in the lava - we were lucky to fly in after the rain, so the colours were more vibrant and there was no dust in the air. May be in future we can ride lunar rovers on Moon or even fly to take "aerial" shots. A few cars on the road for scale.
