Windswept in Reykjavik

Windswept

One of the many buildings in Reykjavik, Iceland that are battered by the harsh weather there. You wouldn’t know it by looking at the sky here but it was quite cold when I took the photo. I think it was at the end of a short photowalk around the city centre when our fingers were numb with cold.

Reykjavik Trawler

Reykjavik Trawler

A trawler leaves port in Reykjavik, Iceland last year while I was there on a Polldaddy meetup. As you read this now I’m in a much warmer part of the world on another meetup!

Iceland was great to visit. It was cold there of course but we weren’t there in the dead of winter so it was manageable. The weather was completely unpredictable however. In one hour you’d get the four seasons; rain, sun, snow and cutting winds within minutes of each other. Quite remarkable and something I haven’t seen anywhere else in the world (says me, the world weary traveller, not!)

Anchors and Tools

There’s rough ground next to the Opera House in Reykjavik, Iceland and what looks like reclaimation efforts nearby. This excavator, shovel and anchor are just left there next to parked cars. The snow covers the dark volcanic earth.
