Exploring the Valleys Beyond the Fjords of Akureyri

Newer Older

I had always wanted to visit fjords ever since reading The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy as a kid... picturing Slartibartfast carving them up was something that always stuck in my mind. The first ones I got to visit were in Iceland after I went up north to stay in Akureyri for a few days. I had actually intended to go one place that my friend Helga suggested, but I ended up getting lost, which is okay enough. This fjord valley kept going and going as the sun started to rise over the edges. I pulled over every few miles whenever the moment seemed right to shoot, and it seemed right so often!

    Island. My favourite place to go with a camera. Filled with envy here.
    Beautiful shot by the way. :)
    AND the beer is probably a lot cheaper now too, with the Króna doing so badly... ;)

    Seen in my contacts' Explore photos. (?)

    The fact that the Fjords are in Norway & not Africa, proves that we are on Earth 1 & not the second one that they were building on Magrathea. ;-)
