Inn í kviku (The fire within), sculpture exhibition at the Ásmundur Sveinsson Sculpture Museum (Ásmundursafn). Sculptures that reflect a simple, and peaceful, expression of tension (or lack thereof).

town by the fjord

The church of Dalvík (Dalvíkurkirkja) and the town viewed from the distance on a clear day...



Sunset on road 82

Between Ólafsfjörður and Dalvík. After so many cloudy days, a glimpse of the noon sunrise on the road was a gorgeous surprise!
