Securing the Icelandic Chopper at Dusk

    Newer Older

    The night I first arrived into Reykjavik, I only had a few minutes of light before the darkness. I soon discovered that the final deep blue before dark lasts about an hour in Iceland. I am quite sure they take it for granted, because I saw it every night and everyone was going on about their business, not taking notice... Over by the docks, I found these four guys securing the blades on this helicopter for the evening.

    See it large for nice details!

      Hi Stucky great shot as ever!

      Unfortunately I must correct you!
      It is the Danish Marine Chopper!
      (Danish flag on the tale and the Danish Marine emblem).

      That's a lynx helicopter, you should add it to tags.
      Nice nighttime pic.

      Wonderful pic. However, the title is a little wrong, as the chopper is carrying the Danish flag.
