Photographer's Note

We arrived at mid day in Höfn. With its 1,600 inhabitants it is the main town in the south east of Iceland. The main economic activity are fishing (in particular lobster fishing) and tourism (Höfn is the south gate to wonderful Eastern Fjords area). While our guide bought food in a supermarket, we had a few minutes to visit the city and its port. There is no valuable architecture here, but I found there was a kind of magic in the air here. Maybe because of the wonderful scenerye : the city sits on a point with the sea on western, southern and eastern sides, while the north is surrounded by mountains. Probably the great light we had contributed to make this atmosphere. Anyway, I loved the few minutes we stayed here before continuing our route to the Eastern Fjords. Here is a photo of the Höfn port with a beautiful light and one of my cotravelers on a pier in the port.
