Everything's going well here. I hope things are good for you as well. Been keeping busy and am finally getting the planting wrapped up. (things I bought last FALL!) You've done a beautiful job with your Cubit!

What a great looking place!
It seems the sunrises and sunsets are beautiful even in the winter.
Just a lot closer together!

ravv - you just have to stop putting those pictures up. i don't know which one is more beautiful. i know i told you the red one but the sunrise in feb and the sunset in 2002 are really beautiful.

ou mention that your town has 25,000 people. i think i had that many people on my block in broiklyn but i hever saw sun rises or sun sets like the ones you have. LOL

Another town center photo from December 2006. This is 4 pm btw, just to give you an idea of the length of day that time of year (sunrise was around 11:30 am)

Frank - I have no idea ..... maybe you don't get used to it .... I've lived here most of my life and I still think the winters are too dark and I always get slightly "manic" in summer because of the bright nights .... I find it impossible to go to bed early. Not because the light is keeping me up, but because I don't want to miss it ;-) I wouldn't mind hibernating in January to be honest ...... if it weren't for all the lights around Christmas I don't know how I'd get through the winter ....... people are even starting to keep some of them up until February when the day finally starts to get longer .... I did that this year and I think I'll do it again.

I really like this one - the light was so magical with the sun filtering through the clouds and the heavy snowfall ......
anyone care to guess what time of day this is? It was taken on January 6th 2007.

Frank - I hear ya! Traveling is a pain, but I think it's worth the trouble if you have the funds to do it - there are so many places I'd like to see with my own eyes ;-) I know you have your reason for not flying so I understand.

Here is some further info on Hafnarfjörður: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hafnarfjörður

The average wage in Iceland is around $2300 pr month.
