Iceland – Day 5 and 6 of Backroads Trip

By David Hume Kennerly | Sep 1, 2014

Day 5 started with a spectacular cloud-encrusted sunrise that provided a dramatic backdrop to the Hotel Ranga where we were staying.  Our destinations today were a geyser, a waterfall, and a bike ride along a lake. Iceland has a multitude of water-related activities, whether it is frozen or just flowing. Sunrise over the Hotel Ranga. […] Read More

Iceland – Day 4 of Backroads Trip

By David Hume Kennerly | Aug 31, 2014

Day Four started with close encounters of the cow kind. A large herd of the critters gathered behind a fence to watch as we prepared to leave for the day’s activities. James Kennerly was the first to spot them, and in no time they had lined up behind him as if he was their paramount […] Read More

Iceland – Day 3 of Backroads Trip

By David Hume Kennerly | Aug 28, 2014

We started our day by strapping on crampons and heading up to the Falljokull Glacier (actually, “Jökull” means “glacier” in Icelandic). A river runs under the glacier, and most of our merry band filled their water bottles from the frigid, sparkling, delicious stream. From where we stood, the top of the glacier field is filled […] Read More

Iceland — Day 2 of Backroads Trip

By David Hume Kennerly | Aug 26, 2014

On Day 2 of our Iceland trip we trekked into Skaftafell National Park, part of the Vatnajokull National Park, to see the Svartifoss waterfall. The rushing river cascades over black hexagonal lava columns, and reminded me of the Giant’s Causeway, a similar natural wonder that I saw earlier this year in County Antrim, Northern Ireland. […] Read More

NPR’s Don Gonyea on President Ford

By David Hume Kennerly | Aug 18, 2014

”‹In one of my longest-distant interviews ever, NPR’s intrepid Don Gonyea reached me at the Hotel Skaftafell in Freysnesi, Iceland as I was preparing to scale the Svinafell Glacier last week. He wanted to talk about President Ford’s first days in office 40 years ago, and I wanted to discuss the spectacular sights of Iceland. He […] Read More

When President Ford took over from Richard Nixon the country was ready for a little less drama emanating from the White House. Ford was just the guy to deliver normalcy. One of the first pictures I […] Read More

Seventy five years ago today, Joe Rosenthal photographed U.S. Marines raising the flag over Iwo Jima. That photo is one for the ages and is an inspiration to all of we news photographers who came after him. I wrote about Joe, who died in 2006 at 95, in a WWII magazine, and also gave a eulogy at his memorial service. One of my thoughts was, “This image will ring through the ages alongside the work of Mozart and Rembrandt and Hemingway. Joe captured the heart and soul of what it means to be a Marine in a picture embodying the essence of Americans. His photo is the symbol of freedom, and the man who took it, a son of immigrants, represents us all.” I loved the guy, he was a modest and wonderful man. His most prized possession was not his famous photo, but a letter from the Commandant of the Marine Corps hanging on his spare apartment wall that named him an honorary Marine. RIP Joe, you were the best of the best. @pulitzerprizes #marines #centerforcreativephotography ...
