Photographer's Note

This one is Langavatn (or Long Lake) at sunset and the little green house is a fishing hut.

Veišivötn has been an attraction to Icelandic farmers for centuries, where they go once a year with their fishing nets to catch trout to keep frozen at home for the rest of the year. The tradition still exists, although nowadays people and farmers go there now more for the leisure's sake, where they fish in the day, work the fish and then people go back to the huts, barbecue, have a drink and sing with guitarplay.

Those huts are pretty much off limits to the regular tourist, as they are reserved far in advanced, often as soon as the farmers leave the hut, for the next year.
