A remote, abandoned fjord in east Iceland.  More images in my latest blog post.

#2 does a good job of conveying scale and isolation. The rest is well done, too!

#2 started to work for me after I discovered the house and the winded road. Unfortunately that house hasn't the red roof like the house in #1. To be honest I would be tempted ... but I know that nowadays this is a no-go

Rajan,

My wife and I enjoyed your latest Iceland photos immensely. She was especially delighted to see the wild Rhubarb, as we have cultivated Rhubarb in our garden.

Thank you, all.

Eric - my wife learnt to make rhubarb jam (rabarbarasulta)  in Iceland.  See this.

Both images are very nice but #2 is outstanding. It shows the vast and almost empty expanses of land in Iceland. This is a thing that always struck me.

My mother still does make some rhubarb jam, with a very similar recipe, but she's not from Iceland!

#2 is exquisite!

My granddad was a farmer in upstate New York, grew a lot of rhubarb and berries. As a kid I ate a lot of rhubarb pie. Sadly I haven’t had any like my grandmother made in many decades. No one in the family seems to be able to make it like she could.

You can watch an Icelander play a xylophone made out of rhubarb stalks in Sigur Ros' excellent video "Heima". And see lots of Icelandic landscapes.
