Iceland holiday - I was surprised by how modern and stylish Iceland is. The geo-thermal energy means buildings are warm and cosy; the rapidly increasing tourism means that much of the visitor accommodation is fairly new and of a high standard. In Reykjavik the new concert hall, Harpa, opened in 2011, seems to be a statement about the forward-thinking mindset of a country with a rich tradition of folklore and creativity.
Harpa was an exciting building to photograph - and a welcome haven from the heavy rain and wind.
