Pure magic.

Exactly my thought. "Lamp over the Atlantic Ocean" is also in the same league although the sense of loneliness or isolation is not that intense.

That's my thought as well.


Dare I say that the lack of motion is very moving???  ;)

Paulo, Bob, Francois, and Eric - thanks muchos, gentlemen.

This was a couple of days after the summer solstice. During the entire span from moonrise to moonset, the moon rose no more than 1.2º over the horizon. It was also a stroke of luck given the capricious weather of Iceland - presence of low clouds would have obscured the scene.
