Overlooking Breidafjordur Bay, Iceland - Canon 5d w/Sigma 35mm

A country church looks out over the many rocky islands in Breidafjordur Bay in Iceland. In the background Helgafell (holy mountain) rises above the landscape. Local legend says that by climbing the mountain without looking back you will receive three wishes. I posted a photo to Instagram from the top, but I'll keep my wishes a secret just in case.

On the horizon you can just see the town of Stykkishólmur, the largest settlement on the Snæfellsnes peninsula.

    Really like the horizon - or lack there of here. The sky blends into the horizon.
