Welcome back to our weekly #MyFavoritePhoto blog series. This Thursday, we are joined by Kara A. as she tells her story of her once in a lifetime trip to Iceland. Picture Keeper’s goal is to help others create and capture priceless memories, which is exactly what Kara did! Here’s her story:

1. Name: Kara Adams

2. Where are you from?: Birmingham, AL

3. When was this photo taken?: January 2017

4. Where was this photo taken?: Selfoss, Iceland

5. Tell us about why you chose this as your favorite photo: ”This is the only time I wasn’t concerned about taking good photos on my trip. I was having too much fun. It was such a cool experience to be surrounded by friendly horses. (But luckily my boyfriend still had his camera ready.)”

6. What do you want to remember about this photo?: ”I was scared the entire time about trespassing onto somebody’s property. I stood from afar until finally I decided to walk across a log to get to this giant horse pasture. I’m so glad I did. It was the highlight of my trip. “

7. What memories does the photo bring back to you?: ”This was our last full day in Iceland. The whole time we were taking pictures, but sometimes forget to enjoy the moment. The sun finally came out for a few minutes for the first time since we had been there. It’s crazy how much a little bit of sun can lift your spirits.”

8. If you could choose one word to describe this photo, what would that word be?: “Blissful”

9. Lastly, how would you feel if you lost this photo?: ”It would be a huge loss. Having a photo of yourself hanging out with some horses in the middle of Iceland isn’t something I could ever get back. We actually had to use my Picture Keeper to back up photos because I kept filling up my phone and had no service to back up to the drive. It was a life saver. I would have missed taking a lot of photos if I hadn’t had it.”
