Photographer's Note

This house is between Bakkagerði and the puffin watching observation platform in Hafnarhólmi.
Bakkagerði is a coastal hamlet in eastern Iceland. A genuine Icelandic fishing village with a small boat fishery, and population about 130. It is part of the municipality of Borgarfjarðarhreppur and situated on the coast of the Borgarfjörður Eystri.
Borgarfjörður Eystri is the northernmost of Iceland’s East fjords. It is located an hour drive from Highway No. 1. Borgarfjörður eystri is home to a very large population of elves. The fjord derives its name from the residency of the Icelandic elf-queen. Álfaborg (Elf Rock, Elf Hill) is a rocky hill right next to Bakkagerði.
