Grundarfjörður is a small town, situated in the north of the Snæfellsnes peninsula in the west of Iceland. The town is situated in front of an impressive mountain range which has a slightly alpine look. On the sea side, there is a beautiful mountain called Kirkjufell which is a diverted piece of the mountain strip Mýrarhyrna. The mountain forms a small peninsula.

The town itself is a charming, quiet, nice fishing village. Another awesome hidden corner in Iceland.

This one was shot at 1.30 a.m., with the sun pointing at North, lighting all the town and the mountains nearby. It was quite cloudy, so, again, a long exposition would spread that fantastic light through the image.

Grundarfjörður es un pequeño pueblo, situado en el norte de la península de Snæfellsnes en el Oeste de Islandia. El pueblo está situado justo en frente de una impresionante cordillera y a su lado, hay una bonita montaña llamada Kirkjufell, que forma una pequeña península.

Grundarfjörður es en sí mismo un encantador y tranquilo agradable pueblo pesquero. Otro rincón escondido e increíble de Islandia.

Ésta foto fue hecha a las 1.30h de la madrugada, con el sol apuntando al Norte, iluminando todo el pueblo y las montañas cercanas. Estaba bastante nublado, por lo que, de nuevo, una larga exposición extendería esa fantástica luz a lo largo de la imagen.
