With our day to day lives filled with stress, work, and lots of tasks or goals to accomplish, we rarely find time to appreciate the beauty of nature. For some of us who have lived all their lives in cities which is filled with houses, cars, and noise, we rarely understand the beauty, tranquility and rewarding sights rural environments have to offer.

To get an idea, check out the winner of our Pxleyes rural panorama contest a few years ago:

Submitted by Still26

This contest is about the tranquility of rural scenery. Take a panorama photo of a rural scenery capturing the rich beauty the environment as to offer. We want to be sure it’s you doing this. Therefore, a picture of you in the scene will be an added advantage.

A maximum of 3 entries per user is allowed.

Congrats to you. Is it true that Iceland is overblown....?......over marketed?

pix2go avatarLevel 5
pix2go replied to Olga.L :

Not in the least! It's a phenomenal country for photography, in particular. The scenery changes dramatically about every 40-50 miles, so there's always something different up ahead. It's likely bigger than you think - we spent eight days on the Ring Road (about 800 miles) and I'd call that a "minimum" for a decent trip. One note - if you see a gas station, fill up. The next one is far away!

Thank you that is good to know for I have heard negative comments from a few people about this country and the fleecing that goes on.....thanks again.

Olga.L replied to Reginafalangi :

I had two friends that went there. One was fairly recently and she hated it simply for the "gimme you moneee" feel. My cousin went there too and he loved it, so went back again. I suppose perhaps some day we will venture forth......when and if COVID dies down.
