Photographer's Note

This photo is taken in the southern outskirts of the Islandic port town of Hafnarfjörður about 10 km south of Rekjavik. For those of you familiar with Norse mythology might know what the artwork on the trailer depicts. It is Thor, a major Norse god associated with thunder and lighting. If you have closer look at his cart pulled by two goats you will find that spokes of the wheels take the form of lightning flashes. In his hand Thor has his hammer, Mjölnir. A fearsome weapon capable of felling giants and crushing rocks. Mjölnir hits everything Thor aims at and then it returns to his hand. Thor also use his hammer to throw it towards the clouds in the sky to create thunder.
