Riding Back to Grundarfjordur

In the Southwest of Iceland, there is so much more vegetation than in the Southeast.

 
With the sheep population far exceeding people population, you would think that you'd see a lot more sheep. They tend to graze over a wide area.

 
The fantastic cloud formations, plus mountains, and a quiet country home--click on any photo for a larger view.

 
I never tire of Icelandic skies.

It is a shame for a Norwegian to say that He has not been to Iceland. Once I had to choose between to conference, on Iceland and one on The Faeroe Islands (not that I regret that visit!). I now ought to visit Iceland.
