How amazing! Beautiful composition, Paul. If I didn't know better, I could easily imagine this in my home state of Wyoming.... just at 7,000 feet, of course!
paul: this is so far off 7000 ft! It is practically in the sea smile
That's a bit isolated for my liking. Hardly handy for the shops!
paul: there were loads of houses like this, literally in the middle of nowhere. It seems that many Icelanders have a place in the country
Very lonely looking.
paul: it is, although it is actually just a few hundred feet of the main highway circling Iceland
The house is almost insignificant in that great landscape.
paul: the landscapes make everything feel insignificant!
Its like a scene from the 'Shipping news', the film of the book by Annie Proulx, smashing shot, Paul, I like the minimalism of it, you certainly made the best of your visit.
paul: I know the book Frank, you're quite right. I'm already thinking of going back, perhaps at a different time of year. In the postcards everything was green and lush so it must be a different place in Summer

I love the way it looks as if there's more snow in the sky than on the land.
