A little bit about Lisette.....

Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest I feel most alive surrounded by trees and breathing in the fresh mountain air.

When I am not working you will most likely find me spending time outdoors, volunteering with my church and exploring this beautiful planet with my family. 

This is my place to share my passion for life and to encourage you to take time to find the extraordinary in your life.

Pseudocraters, double rainbows and miniaturization

Husavik, whale watching capital of Iceland.

Our biggest disappointment of the trip occurred in Husavik, when the decision was made that two people were not sufficient enough to warrant a whale watching tour. Jerks. I guess people in Iceland are not money hungry like us Americans. Undeterred I spent the rest of the day utilizing the new miniature setting on my camera. Had I known about this before know, you would have seen all of Iceland miniaturized, so maybe it was a good thing I just discovered it.

Pseudocraters on Lake Myvatn. A pseudocrater is a volcanic landform which resembles a volcanic crater, but differs in that it was not an actual vent from which lava erupted, just steam.

A double rainbow. I know a lot has been going around on the internet about this, but I was really excited and we spent at least a half hour watching it and taking pictures. Truly amazing, I have never seen a rainbow so intense.
