Lovely light for the first shot but I like the geometry of the second photo a lot.

Just started reading the book "Independent People" by Halldor Laxness.
A novel set in Iceland by an Icelandic author. . Won the Nobel Prize.
Never knew of it til recently.
Curious if anyone here has read it.

Richard,

Yes, I read Independent People and the struggles of the farmer Bjartur long ago. Perhaps I should re-read it.

Halldór's home Gljúfrasteinn just outside Reykjavík is open to visitors and features a very nice guided tour -

Lovely images, as usual Rajan!! I have to ask, those houses , are they apartment units? They seem quite large to be a single house.

Thanks, John.

Those are older houses mostly dating from the 1950s and 60s. Each typically features 4 apartments, 2 per floor.

the light in person must be very close to overwhelming

Michael,

Yes, in the winter months of Dec & Jan when the sun stays close to the horizon, we often get this kind of light.
