Photographer's Note

As promised, here is another abandoned home in the very rural areas of North West Iceland.

I debated long and hard about which to post as the main photo. I really wanted to post the WS #2 as the main but in the end I felt like the house is so small in the frame, you wouldn't even see it from the gallery page.

Anyways, this home is clearly abandoned however...there is a family living near by. Now, when I say near by, it was probably about a kilometre or almost a mile away. You can't really see from the photos, but the land the home is sitting on is very large. There was another more 'recently' built home far off to the right.

My guess is that family owns this home, but its only a guess. and you can see the grass here in the main photo looks to be recently cut and cared for.

So I took a chance, parked my car, and started walking up this driveway, hoping I wouldn't be seen. Nobody noticed me, or perhaps they did but nobody cared. I went inside this home, took some photos, hung out for a bit, took more photos outside the home, then left.

It was a lot of fun :)
Take a look at the MAP feature to see where I was driving to get this shot. Way off the tourist route. Its so much fun exploring this amazing country.
