Sitting in the dark

This was taken back when I was at menntaskóli, over 20 years ago. 2-3 times every winter we would visit one of my classmates who lived out in the country and have a cosy little house party. These gatherings sometimes included visits to the barn and other farm buildings, and on this particular night it was snowless and rather warm for the time of year, so we spent quite a lot of time outside in the dark, playing hide and seek or just sitting around and talking. Seeing the girls sitting together like this was an irresistible photo opportunity.

Sleeping duck

Here is another of my bird photos. This one was taken in Akureyri, where domestic and wild ducks live together on the pond. Over the years their interbreeding has produced some unusual plumage colours and patterns, but this one is a purebred domestic duck.

Live forever

I have not been very active in my photography lately, so I will be posting some of my old stuff until I have some new photos to show you.

Here is one of nature's little wonders: a Sempervivum (liveforever) saxifrage in full bloom. These flowers ordinarily look quite humble and not showy at all, but then they produce these gorgeous blossoms.

Þingvellir

Last Sunday I took a drive to Þingvellir National park, to see it in its winter clothes. The waterfall, Öxarárfoss, was icebound and I got several good photos of it.
