Photographer's Note

Tjörnin is a small, prominent lake in central Reykjavík. Most visitors to the city pass along its shore, as it is situated in the city centre next to the Reykjavik City Hall and several museums. The popular pastime of feeding the birds on the lake shore has led to the lake being called "the biggest bread soup in the world". The lake is frequented by between 40 and 50 species of water birds, including the Arctic tern, the Eider, the Gadwall, the Greylag goose and other species of goose, the Mallard, several species of seagulls, and the scaup. Whooper swan are viewable within close proximity.

As you can see, in winter the lake is frozen and one can go on the ice.

The birds make a big noise, you can hear it: here
