Sólfarið Reykjavík

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The Sun Voyager (Icelandic: Sólfar) is a sculpture in Reykjavík, Iceland, by Jón Gunnar Árnason. The Sun Voyager is located on the waterfront north of Reykjavík's city centre and points towards the sun when it is setting in the north, as suggested by the name. The sculpture is constructed of steel and represents a viking boat sailing into the sunset as can be seen on late summer nights and is the most photographed art piece in Reykjavík.

This photo is taken with Rokinon 14mm 2.8 full manual lens.
