The blue hat is all done.
I meant to photograph it yesterday, but it was way to windy and the sun was a bit to glaring today (and the wind was on the strong side as well).
But the ideal conditions will present themselves, sooner or later.
Now to something totally different.
The sea is eating up the coastline here in Vík, and has been doing so for a long time. Now it’s getting dangerously close to the village and it’s time to do something about it.
And something is indeed being done. There are heavy machines working on “my” black beach, building what directly translates as a “sand-catcher”.
I’m not against it. The village has a right to thrive and it is necessary to act. But it is hard for me to see my favorite part of the beach like this:
and to face that my preferred spots for shooting “Today’s Rock Picture” are gone.
But luckily the beach is vast, and the part one the mountain side of the river is (and will remain) untouched, as you can see on the photo with the children.
The beach also stretches for miles to the east, so there should be enough untouched sand for everyone, even when this is going on. And it’s going to look much better once it’s finished, if I understand the plans correctly.
