Walking back from the Harpa building along the seafront to our hotel in Reykjavik we would pass the gleaming boat sculpture, prow thrust forth to the ocean. This is “The Sun Voyager”.
On our last day the sun came out to dazzle in the aftermath of another shower. With towers still cloaked by cotton clouds the camera had to come out.
I hope you enjoy this iconic image from Reykjavik. To find out more about the Sun Voyager sculpture you can refer to Wikipedia where there is a very interesting write up behind the sculpture and its creator. Not the viking ship everyone assumes!
My only gripe about the sculpture is that it’s backdrop in the other direction is a busy dual carriageway and rather faceless buildings (including the hotel where we stayed). Just have to look out to sea I guess.
