The sun rises late, after 10am, this time of year in Reykjavik, Iceland. So even when work starts at a “normal” time of 8am, the workers need lights to get the job done. I could see this boat from the window of my room at the fabulous Icelandair Hotel Reykjavik Marina. Work began in earnest this morning at 8am with welding torches repairing this old fishing vessel. The work lights were still hitting the ship as the sun rose over the city 90 minutes later, painting the sky a beautiful orange. This is an iconic image for me. Iceland depends on its fishing economy to survive and this image is really a tribute to that. I’m longing to go back.
