The making of this picture took a lot of patience. I really wanted to have the 3 windows in the frame too. When there were exactly 3 people on the right side en 2 on the left I took the picture. The background is just the way I wanted it. It took quite a few exposures. Fortunately this is not a problem with a digital camera. I greatly admire Henri Cartier-Bresson. The master of the "decisive moment"

This road looks reasonable at first sight, but all is not what it seems.
There was a lot of so-called washboard or corrugated road-surface. When you go slowly, you feel every little ridge and when you go fast, it's better for you, but a lot worse for the car.
This kind of road can go on for dozens of miles, then all of a sudden a couple of hundred yards it's okay again to start all over again with the same trouble. On top of that these roads are either very dusty or very muddy. The dust permeates everything if you close your teeth you can hear the grit.

This river was easily crossable with a 4wd at the moment the picture was taken. That can sometimes change very quickly depending on the weather. The middle section is dry now, but can easily flood after a couple of hours of rain. The widest part is always the best part for crossing, because there the water is less deep and flows slower.

1248. I choose a position whereby the cross is enclosed in the mountain top. The wall in front of the church works as a kind of mirror for the mountain.

Theoretically 80 to 85% of the population belongs to the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Iceland also called the National Church of Iceland.

Icelandic moss can have all kinds of hues. When it is dry it has a greyish tone, but with one drop of water it immediately changes back to green.
Here it has a very warm hue because of the evening light.
