Farming in Iceland
Lens: 24-70 Photo Location: Iceland ISO: 800 Shutter Speed: 1/150s Aperture: F9.5 
Posted By: Jimbo, 10-28-2012, 10:05 AM

One of the interesting things about Iceland was its farms. Most had churches on them and most we against a sleep slope water of coarse a waterfall. All most all farms looks fairly run down and at times not sure how they could live there. Always windy and you could be 5-10 miles away from the next farm. One thing they all had was the internet and it was fast. Cheers JIM

Beautiful dramatic settings for farms, and agree with the above posters that #2 is a standout, worthy of printing large!

That last one is very nice. I like the red highlights in there, offsetting Iceland's relentless greens, browns, and blacks.

I also noticed all the farms, even in the harshest of environments. I can only remember one type of farm though: hay (or some kind of grass). There was a lot of sheep, cattle, and horse ranch land, but I never saw anything growing that I thought I could eat.
