I arrived at the end of September and thought it would be good to scoot around the island. So I joined a ring road tour which really did scoot around the island, but didn’t venture to the Westfjords where my residency is. So I’ve had a chance to see most of the tourist sites that are really gob-smacking regarding this incredible island of Iceland.
I was helped to get a lift from Reykjavik to Isafjordur to the residency – amazing scenery. I will add pics when I work out how to. There is another Australian artist staying at ‘Engi’, the name of the house we are in, Ruth McDermott, and we have trudged around Isafjordur working out where things are. She has gone back to Reykjavik for a weekend with her family, and I am snowed in. Amazing looking out the window at the snow on the fjord. Tomorrow it is meant to clear and I will find out if I can actually do any cyanotypes in the weak sunlight that may come out.
