Erecting a New Hotel in Siglufjörður
It seems, that people can't live anymore from fishing, and so they decided, due to the beautiful surroundings, to invest in tourism. So they are erecting a brandnew hotel very next to the harbour. People's opinions are ambiguous with this project. On the one hand they say, that there's absoulutely no need to have a hotel in the middle of the harbour, on the other hand most of the people understand, that tourism is important for the surviving of the city.

We found this neat little church at the southern end of the Landmannalaugar route (F208).
My first Aurora borealis - the first ever seen, and the first ever photographed, of course ;-) Seen on September 12th, 2014 in Southern Iceland.
Another aurora, seen on September 19th, 2014 in Hellnar, Snæfellsnes peninsula, Iceland On the next trip (we plan a trip to Guatemala in February 2015 to visit an old friend working as a Maya explorer) I surely will bring a tripod with me. I could pack another 1.5 kg in my suitcase, so I had to decide between my Zenza Bronica medium format camera, a notebook, or a tripod. I decided to take the notebook. I will test some small tripods the other day, a Gorillapod or some table tripod I saw at the photographer's recently. This time I positioned the camera on a car roof - a provisional arrangement, but for some photos it worked quite well.
Driftwood at Jökulsárlón
They say, that it comes, embedded in ice floes, from the Sibirian coast. Mainly it's found on the northern coast of Iceland. This one I found, in addition to three others, on the south-eastern coast in the very near of glacier lagoon Jökulsárlón. Driftwood is one of the most important wood sources in Iceland.
