The Beautiful Borgarfjörður Eystri

Right now, when the weather outside is reminding us that the Summer is really, truly, believe it or not, so over, and that we have to wait patiently for just a few months (8 months really) for Summer to return, it's the perfect timing to review all the pretty Summer photos that were taken (which seems like was just yesterday). It really makes the house a little warmer.

We had a wonderful time at my mother in law's hometown, Borgarfjörður Eystri. It really is one of the most beautiful places on planet Earth.

The sunset at Borgarfjörður is like nothing else...

...and the little church must be one of the prettiest one you can find...

...I took my easels, canvas, brushes and paint with me and painted Dyrfjöll (and pretended to feel the presence of Master Kjarval) while the rest of the family played on the beach ...

...and this is the result, the "right" side of Dyrfjöll.

Ps: If you haven't spotted this post's real agenda, it's my attempt to lure my friends abroad to visit me with their brushes and easels, or just visit me, either way I'd be so happy!
