ÍS: Patreksfjörður || Pt. 2


Patreksfjörður, Iceland Patreksfjörður is a wonderful example of the unkempt, accidental beauty of small Icelandic towns. The yards are kept respectable, but shabby. The paint is in various states of succumbing to the harsh northern weather. The colorful, yet practical, little houses- almost all with the hardy corrugated iron siding used throughout the island since the the beginning  of the  20th century- seem scattered randomly across the hillside look across the fjord to a stunning set of mountain ridges. Children run around unwatched and laundry hangs out to dry behind most houses, drying slowly in the chilled summer air.
