This week I thought I’d continue with the series from Iceland, sharing two photos of the church at the lovely (at least in part) village of Vík. This is now a very popular stop along the south coast, a short distance from the black sand beach at Reynisfjara, and a convenient place for lunch and other tourist needs. The photos show two slightly different aspects of the church. Both are from the same general direction, but the difference in vantage point changes its relationship with the surrounding landscape.

Our stop at Vík was rather short, so instead of spending the time in the (I think recently built) shopping complex or a restaurant therein, we bought something to eat and headed off to the beach. Nothing better than having a bite to eat with the sound of crashing waves and the taste of the salty air.
