Day 2 - Reykjavik - Vik
Still on Dyrhólaey peninsula near Vik on south coast of Iceland, here is Dyrhólaey lighthouse. A first lighthouse was built there in 1910, but the actual one was built in 1927. It sits top of cliffs at a 118 metres altitude. It has a white flash every 10 seconds. I took this picture on a nice end of day light.

the light illuminating the lighthouse is wonderful, very warm, and appealing. you have placed the lighthouse perfectly in the frame, showing us a lovely grassy foreground, and then a stunning view over the sea.

i can see you was lucky with the weather when you visited Iceland. The lighthouse looks like an interesting building but i guess it was not possibly to go inside? I like the warm light and the pleasant colors, excellent composition also, well done!
Have a nice evening.

Le phare est intéressant mais c'est évidemment la lumière qui fait toute la photo ici.

Les belles teintes chaudes qui baignent cette photo sont du plus bel effet.
Belle photo, bravo !
