Gone to See Iceland 2014 – Winter Photography Trip. Day 3: Reykjavik.

I spent the much of the morning at the Solar Voyager (Sólfar) sculpture with the goal of making a time-lapse video of people visiting the sculpture. Hopefully, someday I will have time to process the images. While working on this four women with Viking helmets came up to me and asked me to take their picture in front of the sculpture. All in the days work of a photographer… Further down the walking path along  Sæbraut street on the Reykjavik coastline is The Partnership sculpture.
