Untold Story

Posted by
Darkelf Photography (Perth, Australia) on 12 April 2016 in Landscape & Rural.


When travelling through Iceland we have noticed a number of abandoned farms and houses all around the country. Each one, no doubt, hiding an untold story of past glories, declines and tough decisions to move on.

One such farm that caught my attention for a bit longer was this one with ruined silos near the locality of Krysuvik, not far away from Blue Lagoon and Grindavik. There was something striking about this particular farm. May be it was how it fitted with the rugged but colourful surrounding landscape. It seemed almost a natural part of that landscape, now that it has been abandoned for a while. One could almost say that the land has claimed it as one of its own.
