The Snowplow

Life in the sub-Arctic North.

Some years ago a ferocious storm left me Stranded in Strandir. There is only one track into and out of the area, and in the winters it is cleared once a week unless there is an emergency. Photographers out shooting in snowstorms are not considered an emergency unless there is danger to life and limb.

Steini Finn and his snowplow helped us get to the nearby airstrip at Gjögur for my flight out.
