Unaðsdalur

Remote and deserted.

The abandoned farm and church of Unaðsdalur lie on Snæfjallaströnd (“Snow Mountain Coast”) in the Westfjords of Iceland. We were treated to a sampler of the harsh conditions the region is exposed to; these photos were taken in the midst of a raging gale.

In the first image, the lighthouse on Ædey (“Eider Island”) is seen in the distance to the left of the frame. As the name suggests, Ædey is a major breeding ground for Eider Ducks.
