Photographer's Note

If you know anything about me, you'll know that I have a strong passion for Abandoned subjects.

Abandoned subjects are wonderful to photograph, but I understand it's not everyone's cup of tea.

I have posted this red roofed shack before, but from a different angle. Today its in a more acute angle and perspective, with sharper and more dramatic lines.

Before going to Iceland I actually hunted Online for abandoned ships, boats, homes, hospitals, cars, trucks...its amazing what you can find.

So I had a Vague idea where this large Red Roofed shack was, but it was still incredibly difficult to locate. We tried to hunt it down on our first day in Iceland but gave up, it was not going well.

But on our last day, with only 2 hours to kill before needing to be at the airport, we decided to give it another try. We found it!!!

There it sat in the middle of a lava field, right by the ocean!!! How beautiful is that!! So hard to find, but it was worth every effort.

Inside were old clothes hanging from the wooden beams, and many painters brushes, canvases...perhaps this used to belong to someone who would escape the real world and sit here to simply paint! One could only imagine.

I'll post 2 more in the WS of other subjects. One of a truck, and one of an old crane.

I also added the MAP VIEW, but its not exact, its approximate - too hard to find.

thanks for looking
