Sunshine and shadows
I went for a hike in the mountains this morning with a friend from work. The sun was just starting to shine and the weather was very beautiful. I have posted a lot of pictures from this place and I probably will keep on doing that every once in a while because I always find this scenery so beautiful :o)
Sunshine, at last.
Today the sun finally showed it self here in Isafjordur after many weeks of waiting. I quit work early and went out to see the sun and take some pictures. Here is the first one. It was a beautiful day, but still very cold :o)
View from the mountainside
I took a walk in the mountainside above Isafjordur few weeks ago and took this picture. It was very chilly but I always like the view of my hometown when it is getting dark :o)
Sand, sea and snow....
but still no sun :o) I visited this place yesterday for the first time in over 30 years and yet it is not more than 15 minutes drive away from my home. It was raining but I will surely go there again in the summer when the sun will be shining and I can walk barefoot in the sand :o)
Brighter times ahead
After a long and dark winter the sun is finally starting to show again. I didn't see it but it lit the town up for a while when the thick clouds drifted away. I took this picture from my home a few days ago.
This is one of my favorite places. Very nice scenery and always great to sit down and enjoy the view after climbing up there :o)
Sing us a song...
Tonight was kind of a Halloween here in Isafjordur, the kids knock at your door, sing a song and get some candy instead. Those two handsome "ladies" sang some lyrics they wrote themselves and got their rewards :o)
The sky is watching
The last picture from that night. All the Northern Lights were gone but I took one more, just checking for how long I could keep the finger on the shutter. I lasted 122 seconds, it was really cold, more than -10 degrees ;o)
