ÍS: Boats That Don’t Float

000041batch 000040batch The boat in the two pictures above is Garðar BA64. It was beached here, near Patreksfjörður, in 1981 during bad weather. Built in Norway in 1912, it is the oldest steel ship in Iceland. It is a rather haunting sight, sitting alone at the end of a fjord in the remote Westfjords. Below is an image from Ísafjörður.

  1. I found that by thrusting my camera into holes in the hull I could get some beautiful shots. They were really haunting. It was like time travel.
