Another Icelandic sunset

The bloke & I watched almost every sunset from the old fishing docks in Akranes for the eight days we were in Iceland. Each one was different and they were all spectacular. Our host told us that this one was going to be orange and blue, unlike the previous evening's, which was pink. I have no idea what combination of temperature, cloud cover, wind, season and ancient bone-bred fisherman's instinct he used to predict the colours but he was right.

I don't think it's possible that this view could grow tiresome.

Gorgeous shot. You may have finally sold me on Iceland.

Holy crap! I didn't think the sunset could be any better than New Mexico, but it looks like Iceland wins.

Ooh, I don't know. New Mexico is pretty amazing, from what I remember. I think I'll have to go back and do a comparison.

I imagine it would taste like nipping a peaty whisky from a flask on a cold winter day.

Absolutely beautiful! The sunsets over vast expanses of water just have something extra in them. It was like this when we were in Hawaii.

Yes! My parents & I were kind of driving the bloke nuts by constantly making comparisons to Hawai'i. "This is like the Big Island! This is like Kona! Ooh, look at the a'a/pahoehoe [lava types]!"
