As landscape photography is one of my main areas of interest, I am am truly excited about this week’s Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge: Landscape. Each day this week, I will share some of my favorite landscape shots.
This shot was taken in the town of Ólafsfjörður looking out over the dock that reaches out into the Eyjafjörður. This little town sits nestled into the hills that rise from the fjord.
The town grew up around the herring industry that was in much bloom in the 1940s and 1950s, but the herring are gone now.
Ólafsfjörður was connected with a road for the first time in 1940, when the horse riding trail through Lágheiði was improved enabling cars to get over the heath. Before, ships, seaplanes, and horses provided the transport.
Hope you like it.
This image was shot with a Canon EOS 5D Mk III with an EF 24-105 f/4L lens (circular polarizer attached). This image was shot at 1/125 second at f/11 at 320 ISO.
