This church is named Hallgrimskirkja, it is located in the centre of Reykjavik. It is the tallest building in Iceland.

Swan, svane, schwans, cisne, sygne, svan, cigno.

On the way back from Greenland I had to change airports in Reykjavik. I have arrived at the small city airport and had around an hour of free time. As I had all my luggage with me I decided to walk only around the city pond.

 

I wasn't expecting it to look so calm and pretty that morning...

Reykjavik, Iceland at 11 pm in mid-July

In the spirit of full disclosure, afterall I'd hate someone to travel halfway round the world to see this and then realise it isn't quite as blue as shown here, this shot of Hallsgrimkirkja may not totally represent reality.

 

It's not that I've vastly altered it in Photoshop but, thanks to the mixed lighting condition created by the warm interior lights and the very cold (not to mention wet.....) daylighting, by altering the white balance to reduce the yellowness of the ceiling I've strengthened the blue. I thought it looked quite striking so I left it..........

From Wikipedia : "Hallgrímskirkja is a Lutheran (Church of Iceland) parish church in Reykjavík, Iceland. At 73 metres (244 ft), it is the largest church in Iceland and the sixth tallest architectural structure in Iceland after Longwave radio mast Hellissandur, the radio masts of the US Navy at Grindavík, Eiðar longwave transmitter and Smáratorg tower. The church is named after the Icelandic poet and clergyman Hallgrímur Pétursson (1614 to 1674), author of the Passion Hymns.

 

State Architect Guðjón Samúelsson's design of the church was commissioned in 1937. He is said to have designed it to resemble the basalt lava flows of Iceland's landscape. It took 38 years to build the church. Construction work began in 1945 and ended in 1986, the landmark tower being completed long before the church's actual completion. The crypt beneath the choir was consecrated in 1948, the steeple and wings were completed in 1974, and the nave was consecrated in 1986. Situated in the centre of Reykjavík, it is one of the city's best-known landmarks and is visible throughout the city. It is similar in style to the expressionist architecture of Grundtvig's Church of Copenhagen, Denmark, completed in 1940."

Works better on black if you have time to click L

Sorry but I have no information about this house. We came across this residence on the seafront at Reykjavík on our first morning in Iceland. I would have liked to get closer but I think someone lives there....a curious house indeed.

 

THANKS FOR YOUR VISIT HAVE A GREAT DAY

One of my favourite shots from my recent trip to Iceland, I don't think I've seen this viewpoint of the Hallsgrimkirkja before which seems pretty surprising......

This is by far my favourite landmark from Iceland, it’s called The Sun Voyager and it can be found along the Reykjavik waterfront. There’s something about the skeleton-like structure of this statue that I really enjoy. This shot was snapped on my iPhone on an evening walk through Reykjavik. It was a beautiful evening; a day of cold, grey rain had broken into a beautiful dusk.

 

While I prefer to shoot with my Canon 7D, I have to admit that the iPhone is an essential piece of kit. There’s a few apps that I use that either a) allow me to take some cool shots or b) help me use my Canon better. They are:

 

Lumy (always know when it is Magic Hour)

 

ioShutterPro (no more user-unfriendly intervalometer)

 

Hyperlapse (time-lapse on the go)

 

Afterlight (for editing on the phone)

 

Flickr (great for inspiration)

 

Changing gears to music, I still can’t get Frightened Rabbit out of my head. Here’s another favourite of mine, Twist.

Höfði was used to make the first radio communications between Iceland and the outside world in 1905. Also the meeting place for Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev of the USSR to end the Cold War.

 

So much important history for a house.

 

Have been busy over the weekend. Will catch up with everyone today!

Detalj staklene konstrukcije iznutra, zgrada je visoka 43 m, a fasada izrađena od staklenih geometrijskih tijela s četverokutnim, šesterokutnim ili osmerokutnim stijenkama...

 

Detail of glass construction from inside, the building is 43 m high, the facade is made of glass geometrical cells with square, hexagonal or octogonal walls...

In 1986, the district association of the west part of the city funded a competition for a new outdoor sculpture to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the city of Reykjavík. Jón Gunnar’s Sun Voyager won the competition, and the aluminium model (42,5 x 88 x 36 cm) was presented to the city for enlargement. The full-sized Sun Voyager was eventually unveiled on Sæbraut on the birthday of the city of Reykjavík, August 18th, 1990.

 

WE ALL HAVE OUR FANTASY BOATS, VESSELS THAT WE DREAM OF SAILING AWAY IN, INSIDE DREAM. IN MY SHIPS I UNITE MY OWN FANTASY, PRECISION AND THE KNOWLEDGE THAT BOAT BUILDERS HAVE DEVELOPED THROUGHOUT THE AGES. THE SUN SHIP GIVES US THE PROMISE OF UNINHABITED LAND. Jón Gunnar Árnason (1931-1989).

Absolutely no post-fiddling with colours involved.

Far-away beautiful sunset in Reykjavik the capital of Iceland.
