Stefan Christmann (websiteFacebook500px.) will share his story and pictures from traveling in Iceland. Also, check out Stefan's previous article on spending a year in Antarctica.

I am all by myself walking on a moonlike surface, trying not to slip on the moss-covered alien-shaped rocks I am climbing across. The Sun has been trying to set for the past two hours, but now it has changed its direction and starts to rise again. Rain sets in once more and creates a perfect rainbow in front me, stretching across the enormous waterfall I am walking towards - it’s at least 50 meters high. In the distance I can hear menacing rumbles of the rough sea and merciless waves are crashing onto the black lava beach, transporting giant ice blocks from nearby glacier onto shore. I have set my camera to manual and dial in my exposure time and aperture. I try to hurry as I am absolutely drenched and cold gusts of wind are giving me chills that run throughout my entire body. However, my discomfort vanishes instantly when I look at the display of my camera. Who cares about being wet and cold? This is the most awesome light I have ever witnessed - thank God I brought enough memory cards.

6 hour tour of Cairo

6 Hour Tour of Cairo by Chu Eseka

Hello everyone, my name is Chu known more as CEBlueclouds on NR.  Been signed on NR since June 2012 and always enjoyed reading various post by guests and wondered if I would ever do one myself.

Long time [NR] contributor Ron Volmershausen sent me a note about this very rare Nikon F camera currently listed on eBay (last bid $2,204):

This listing on eBay is going to create a bit of a 'stir' amongst the collectors; the 87th Nikon F to roll off the production line, way back in 1959. The seller didn't know what they had until a few eBay members started asking for more photos and info.

While early examples like this come up from time to time; this is one of the rarer examples as the body still has the original cloth-type shutter curtain... a feature leftover from the rangefinder days:
