Photographer's Note

Travelling east from Reykjavik in the south of Iceland, before reaching Skogafoss, one passes by the glacier-topped volcano Eyjafjallajokull, north of the Ring Road - the one which erupted in 2010, stopping air traffic in Europe for a couple of weeks. From time to time one catches glimpses of it above smaller, rocky peaks, and the farms which nestle beneath them.

The photo shows a typical breathtaking view of a small farm with Icelandic horses and sheep grazing, and a small farmhouse with a faded, red iron roof. I took great pleasure in watching the clouds' shadows drift across landscapes like this one. The only place-name I can find on the map that seems close to the spot where I took the photo is the tiny settlement of Asolfsskali, where there is a farm, a small church, a guesthouse and a cottage.
