Cod heads drying on a drying rack. Once these racks were a common sight all over Iceland, filled with drying heads and fish for the stockfish trade. They have been disappearing one after the other during the last 30 years or so, due to a declining trade in stockfish.

There is a nice photograph I took in June 2010 in Reykjanes of cod heads/fish drying, illuminated by the low sun of a summer's night. The warm mellow light makes it quite appealing. I will have to post it sometime on my blog. I am heavily backlogged - and that is not counting the mountain of images I have to bore through from my latest expedition.

I know what you mean - I have thousands of photos and just choosing the ones to post is a monumental task. I'm trying to tread the line between showing what Iceland is like and posting shots I just like.
