Around 10 miles in length and 440 metres high, Látrabjarg in Iceland is considered among the world’s greatest bird cliffs. We got there a little after 10 pm last night. It is a wondrous sight.

Látrabjarg was the scene of the dramatic rescue of the British trawler Dhoon in 1947. (Hint to the curious: use Google.)

    Amazing pictures, as always! The colors of the puffin beaks and feet are almost neon-like.
    Picture 1 of the puffin pair looks like it could be a companion to your now famous Udaipur peacock jodi -“lovebirds”!
    Look forward to more Iceland pictures, for my armchair travels.
    Thank you,
