Throwback Thursday: Sólfar

 

Sólfar is a sculpture in Reykjavik, the Icelandic capital. It symbolizes a dragon boat with 5 Vikings sailing to the west. The Icelandic name means “Sun voyage” or “voyage to the sun”.

In this image taken at about 2 a.m. (yep, in the middle of the night), I illuminated parts of the sculpture. In the older post, you can see some other images, too.

Take care!

Throwback Thursday: midnight sun

23:04h local time – full frame sensor, 22mm, f16, 1/160s, ISO400

Today, 5 years ago, was the last day of my first trip to Iceland.

That island is so magical. I flipped over and over again through my images to find the one, representing the island to me.

When reading the post, I linked above, you can see, we have a very wet trip. But, the light of the nearly endless summer nights ist so fantastically.

Take care!
