Well, there is one major caveat: the weather. Iceland doesn't normally get very warm, with an average high temperature in July of 57 degrees Fahrenheit. Add in the strong wind that can happen, plus the unpredictability of it all, and it can all add up to trouble.
That's what happened to me on my first art nude expedition to Iceland in 2013 with models Aubrey and Brooke Lynne. As it was, it turned out to be the coldest summer in memory, but despite the difficulties, Aubrey and Brooke did admirably.
Nonetheless, I felt a second trip was in order to try to get things done right and to take care of unfinished business. This time, in 2014, through a combination of both better weather and better planning, I was able to get more good results with Nadine Stevens, Zoe West and Rebecca Tun.

Is my Icelandic adventure complete? I don't think so, as much of the country still remains for me to see. When I will return for the next visit I do not yet know. However, I do know this: Iceland beckons - and I will be back.
