Photographer's Note

While the first settlers in the Fjord of Sejdisfjördur where in fact Vikings in the 10th century, the place became important only when norvegian settlers in the 19th century. These whalers brought with them some colorful wooden houses. The settlement was further out in the Fjord then and moved, including its charming blue wooden church, to its current place in 1906 when it wash established as a modern telecommunications hub.
Today Sejdisfjördur has a bohemian mood with lots of artists living in the place. The 700 inhabitants are connected to the rest of Europe by a weekly ferry to the Faraoe Islands.
I took this picture while hunting for the northern lights one evening.
If you have seen the film "the secret life of Walter Mitty" you may remember Sejdisfjördus only hotel the Aldan
