This has to be on the tour of sights in Reykjavik but the main challenge is finding a different angle to photograph it from. Sunrise was too early to it was a sunset photo shoot for me!

Walk along the old harbor in Reykjavik, past the Harpa concert hall, and you come to what looks like the skeleton of a Viking ship, facing east. You're at the Sun Voyager, a beautiful view point. The only thing that spoils it is the traffic whizzing by at all hours of the day and night.

Even better than in the photo's! This is definitely a must see! A great place to take pictures and just sit and enjoy the ocean. Loved it!

I always think this sculpture looks more like Whale Bones versus a viking ship, but no matter, I love it. You walk along the harbor to see it, which is a beautiful stroll. If you go in the late evening it is rarely busy and looks good in the twilight.

Views from here of bay wonderful in winter. Sculpture makes a good image for photos especially in winter snow.
