Driving along the coastal roads of Iceland

BA 64 ⛵️ . This boat „BA64“ was built in Norway 1912 as a state of the art whaling boat with hybrid propulsion consisting of a powerful steam engine and traditional sails. The steel hull was reinforced to be able to brake through ice. In 1981 after a long service the boat couldn‘t pass safety regulation and got beached in the westfjords on purpose. The Icelantic way of disposing back then I guess...haha Today, that wreck still lies there slowely rusting away.

I find myself drawn to monochromatic edits. There's something about the lack of color that makes you observe the shapes, textures, and feeling of the location. Of course, removing color makes the picture simpler, which I always appreciate. So, I decided to do a little series of monochrome shots. Swipe to see more👉🏽 . . Also a little tidbit, blue is my favorite color. Growing up, it was my favorite color. Also 7 was my favorite digit. When I see the digit 7 on paper, I imagine it in blue. Weird. Now, you know, why my edits have some extra blue in them. This may have also influenced my love for cold places🥶❤️ . . . . . #myicelandtravel #igersiceland #visiticeland #beyondthelands_ #activityiceland #icelandair #icelandadvice #icelandscape #icelandroadtrip #icelandtravel #icelandtoday #everydayiceland #guidetoiceland #islanda #bestoficeland #nomadict #compassoutdoors #mountainscapes #visitwestfjords #earthoffical #depthofearth #mystopover #mountainshotz #mountainscenery #beyondthelands_ #wildvisuals #roamanywhere

Í dag er 17. Júní, fæðingardagur Jóns Sigurðssonar (forseta) . Fyrir 75 árum, árið 1944 var hann gerður að stofndegi íslenska lýðveldisins og hefur verið þjóðhátíðardagur Íslendinga upp frá því. Hefð er fyrir því að flagga íslenska fánanum á þessum degi og er engin undantekning á því á Minjasafninu að Hnjóti. Þessi litla fánastöng með íslenska fánanum var í eigu Andrésar Karlssonar frá Kollsvík og er til sýnis á grunnsýningu safnsins. Opið er á safninu í allan dag. Heitt á könnunni og sögulegur fróðleikur. Frábært að drífa fjölskylduna á safnið, frítt fyrir yngri en 18 ára. Gleðilegan þjóðhátíðardag! #hnjoturmuseum #hnjotur #latrabjarg #vesturbyggd #inspiredbyiceland #visiticeland #icelandtravel #icelandicculture #visitwestfjords #westfjords #vestfirðir #museum #icelandicmuseum #folkmuseum #history #localhistory #icelandichistory #17júní

Church with a view 💧 . Came across so many identical looking churches in Iceland that I‘m starting to wonder if IKEA sells them as a pre-built kit. 🤣 This one was the cutest looking of all.. - and what a view. 🤯 Almost, almost makes you wanna go to church. Nooooot 🤣

Just a rundown hut I found in one of the mountain passes I went over in Iceland. I walked a full circle around this hut and looked through the windows as well. A bunch of dusty furniture was on the inside, but it was clear no one had been in it for a long time. If you had a sleeping bag, would you sleep inside for a night?

We visited #dynjandi on Thursday. It’s a must-see waterfall that’s well worth the arduous drive on mountainous gravel roads. It’s in a very isolated spot in the #westfjords so you’ll be rewarded with a fantastic waterfall with few tourists. Unfortunately the flies are out in full force with the warm, windless weather, hence me trying to disappear into my coat. #diebugdie #dynjandi #waterfall #dynjandifoss #foss #iceland #westfjords #visitwestfjords #summersiniceland

Westfjords ⛰🇮🇸 . Mountains playing hide & seek with clouds in Icelands Westfjords. 💨

🐠 Farm. . One of the many salmon fish-farms of the westfjords. These poor salmon never see the freedom. Did you know, that these massive fish-farms polute the water of the fjords heavily and hurt wales and seals? Humans should just leave animals off their plates, would make the world so much better...! 😥 Your choice, your sales receipt matters..! 👊

Drainage trenches. . Top down perspective of a field in the Westfjords of Iceland. Conditions are harsh up here with long lasting winters. To dry the fields quicker, farmers use drainage systems like these. Simple trenches help get some moisture out of the fields to gain more grassing land for the sheeps. 🐑

Enjoy this video of eider ducklings swimming with their parents on Vigur. We also got to see several nesting mamas (next picture) and nests. The owners of the island harvest, dry, and clean the eiderdown, then export it, primarily to Germany and Japan. We had some ancestors who lived in the islands just south of the Westfjords, near Flatey, and they liked did this too in the 19th century. #ducks #eiderduck #iceland #westfjords #visitwestfjords

At the end of the gravel road to Selárdalur is ... weirdness. An Icelandic man lived here and created his own sculpture and buildings out of cement he made himself from beach sand. He never traveled outside Iceland, but used postcards from Europe as inspiration. Now a German artist is leading a restoration of the church, museum, and art, and a replica farmhouse (in black) is in progress. There are currently Icelanders, Germans, and Americans living on this remote farm, working on the restoration. #iceland #westfjords #arnarfjörður #visitwestfjords #art #sculpture #cement

☀ Солнце подходит к самой вершине, к своему пику. Белые горы уже залиты светом, а их маленькие жители собирают его, запасают к долгой синей зиме. А кто-то прячет его в лёд, оставшийся с прошлой зимы - существует поверье, что так надежнее... Как надежнее собирать и хранить травы в переплетениях прошлогодних трав, набравших больше сил. . ☀ А ведь никто даже не задумывается, почему нам больно смотреть на само солнце, а солнечный свет, спрятанный в переливы льда, так притягивает взгляд. Всё потому, что солнце горячее, а лёд остужает его свет и бережно хранит. . ☀ ... чтобы когда наступит синяя зима, по чуть-чуть доставать и бросать в небо, в то тёмное время, когда солнца совсем не бывает. И тогда горизонт засверкает малиново-желтым, прохладным, не ярким, но долгим-долгим ледяным светом. Если видишь его зимой - знай, что кто-то только что достал из своего тайника кусочек льда с летним солнцем и отправил его к небу... . ☀ Ну а пока солнечного света необыкновенно много, можно и самому собирать его в кусочки льда, чтобы зимой было светлее. 💜. . #северные_сказки_про_лето_но_нет . #полэтолава_iceland #iceland #ig_iceland #northernshots #hiddeniceland #reykjavik #northerniceland #visiticeland #scandinavia #visitwestfjords #Исландия #loves_iceland #igiceland #wheniniceland #unlimitediceland #diamondbeach #jokulsarlon #jokulsarlonglacierlagoon #diamondbeachiceland

I enjoy a nice winding road, especially in a place like Iceland, where roadtripping equals complete freedom! Of course, follow the signs to not step on fragile fora, don’t fly drones in national parks, and definitely don’t drive your vehicles off-road. There’s so much freedom to be experienced while following the rules that protect the planet.

This is what we call calm seas. Enjoying the fair weather that we’ve had for the last week or so. Summer is definitely off to a good start.

'Plastic Origin' by @pauline_brami... This sculpture embodies a landscape, its strengths and its fragility. Clay flecked with basalt minerals represents smoke, which reflects the idea of earth expression (earth breath) and the origin of life (the significant amounts of reduced iron and manganese, present in basalt, provide potential energy sources for bacteria). #icelandart #djupavikart #visitwestfjords #artexhibition #oldwalls #concretebuilding #sculpture #inspiredbynature #cracks
