A Sunny Day in Bolungarvik

 
Bolungarvik Church. Approximately 80% of Icelanders belong to the National Church of Iceland (Lutheran).

 
When we visited, this young lady was performing for us. She was the premier performer in the national accordion contest we were told, but I have searched and cannot find her name. If anyone knows her name, please leave that information in the comments.

Bolungarvik, near the end of the Westfjords. (It looks like a troll might have sat on the mountains behind the town.)

Mankind looks so small in these terrific seceneries!
I love this little church standing near the gigantic cliff/mountain. It's simple, yet so powerful!
Great photos Margaret.
