iceland 2014 (21)

glaumbær turf farm is the highlight of the skagafjord regional museum (byggðasafn skagafirðingar) near the town of sauðárkrókur in northern iceland. icelanders lived in buildings of this kind for centuries. in fact, the last turf farm was left by its residents only in the 1960s, and even today storage sheds, but also cafés and summer homes are built in this traditional way.

Shot from a fine angle. The white fronts in a row are very eye-catching. A successful shot.
