This summer 2012

Blue moon last august
                                              The road is the road from home to home
                                                                Bird of paradise
                                     The beach is a children playground but not for bikini people
                                            No one can walk across the ocean, stop here!
                                   This statue: The strong man "Grettir" in a battle with the ghost!
                                          The sea in evil mode, no longer children playground
                                                    Walking past the wheel of time
                                                           Parade in the rain

Vestmanna island

Ferry from one cruise ship sails into Vetmannaeyjar

 House shows under the ash after a volcanic eruption that occurred on the island 1973
 The highest point of the island, where the weather station and lighthouse.
 Many minor outlying islands surround the main island
 A man hangs a rope and flies the cliff wall as if he were Tarzan
The harbor, sheltered by high cliffs

Silent winter

The old village sleeps for the winter. Travelers are not many at this time of year, although winter can be a pleasurable experience. But spring is on its way very soon.

Thus Eyrarbakki

An old drawing by Halldor Petursson shows life in the old Eyrarbakki, Iceland chariot horses, Icelandic dog, children and people working at a small store. This shop is still operating and selling mainly souvenirs.

Gavia immer (Himbrimi)

There are not many birds of the species "Gavia immer" in Iceland, maybe a couple hundred pairs, and this is a sensitive type. Often gets the trout nets and sometimes shot. In winter, the gaps have been cut when the oil spill have been in the sea. They lay only two eggs is common to only one pup survives. This bird was seen in the village recently. The bird is in winter clothing, but the summer clothes are however much more decorative.

Eyrarbakki in time

Modernity meets the old times. Electricity, and television antennas linking the old house to the world.

The old street has almost not changed over the centuries. Thus Eyrarbakki, always the same.

This old man is no longer collecting hay in his spot. But the spot is still the same place and some other old man will beat spot ever.
