We have been fortunate that our sojourn in the northern fjords of Iceland has coincided with clear skies. At these latitudes within a stone’s throw of the Arctic Circle, the golden light of the sun lingers for almost an hour. The midnight sun is a marvelous spectacle, but even more arresting are the warm tones it paints over the Icelandic landscape.
Last night the skies lit up over Skjálfandi Bay near Húsavík. Also seen to the left is Lundey (“Puffin Island”).
A few days earlier, a drive along Skagafjörður was richly rewarded.
