In honor to those we have lost.

In honor to those we have lost.
This statue was built In 1974 in memory of seamen from Ísafjörður.
It is written "To honor those we have lost and for good fortune to those who sail at sea."

Many good men have been lost to the sea in our small town through the years, so seeing the statue in weather like that reminds us how little and week we are compared to the forces of nature.

Another great winter shot! The blowing snow really adds to this sculpture. It shows the hardships even more.
Viola just posted a photo of this statue with the hospital in the background.

Thanks John :) I agree that the blowing snow adds to the sculpture, and especially because it is a monument for lost seamen. Many of them lost their lives in bad weather like this.

Sá einmitt þessa styttu á mynd hjá Violu... í svolítið öðruvísi veðri :o) Styttan verður einhvernveginn miklu áhrifameiri í svona veðri!

Já ég kíkti á myndina hjá Violu. Alltaf gaman að sjá hvernig aðrir nálgast sama myndefni og maður sjálfur. Ég á einmitt mynd sem er tekin eins og hennar mynd, með sjúkrahúsið í bakgrunni.
