Kolgrafarfjörður, again

Almost exactly one year ago, random.org picked one of the photos I took at Kolgrafarfjörður Viewpoint for my weekly post. Now it’s picking another one of them.

Kolgrafarfjörður is a fjord on the northern coast of the Snæfellsnes peninsula, on Iceland’s west coast. It sits just a couple of kilometres to the east of Kirkjufell, the most photographed mountain in Iceland. The whole peninsula is full of amazing targets for photography.

Comet McNaught

In early 2007, comet C/2006 P1 (or comet McNaught after its discoverer, British-Australian astronomer Robert H. McNaught) was visible from the southern hemisphere for several weeks. It was the brightest comet in several decades and made quite a show in our skies.
