Photographer’s Notes:

Three weeks might sound like quite a bit of time to travel in Iceland, however, the time I had ticked away much faster than I thought it would have. I really

wanted to visit the Western Fjords…  I knew I really didn’t have enough time to go there… I’ve never been one to admit defeat. Instead of spending the time I

wanted to there I just rushed through. I wanted to high somewhere high to get a good panoramic view over one of the Fjords but I just didn’t have a day to spare

to spend climbing a mountain. I found this lookout that had a rough little track running up to it. I managed to manoeuvre my motorbike up the steep track to the

top. The most exciting part of it all had to be riding up a ridge with a steep drop at either side of it.
At the top I found this view.

More About Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights. In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states. Text by Steve Smith.
