Héraðsflói From Above

Nature’s canvas.

Striking patterns seen on a winter afternoon coasting over Héraðsflói and Héraðssandur.

Héraðsflói is a wide bay (flói = bay, in Icelandic) with turquoise green waters abutting the mountains of Borgarfjörður Eystri in northeast Iceland.

Tómas Kárason, captain of a fishing boat in Neskaupstaður, flew me in his Cessna 172. We took off from Egilsstaðir airport. Tómas was extremely generous, declining any compensation for his time and effort.
