Built in 1896, Silfrastaðirkirkja is an example of much of Iceland's Christian heritage. Beautifully constructed small churches located on stunning landscapes, from coast to coast, in every small community.
In stark contrast to the majority of black sand beaches in Iceland, Skarðsvík, secluded in the northwestern tip of the Snæfellsnes Peninsula, resembles a Mediterranean shoreline with its beautiful turquoise waters and golden brown sand. Skarðsvík can be quite aggressive and even dangerous when high tide and strong winds play together and anger the Ocean; however, I was very fortunate as I was able to capture the beach on a beautiful calm day at low tide.
Taken near a popular Kolgrafarfjördur viewpoint in North Iceland, the Snæfellsnes Farmhouse displays some colourful friendly welcoming roadside covered hay bales. At home we affectionate referred to these bales as "Marshmallows".
