This, the "new" lighthouse was built on Garðskagi in 1944. At 28 metres it is the highest lighthouse in Iceland. It is a five floor building with a 360 degree lookout platform at the top.

I am drawn to symmetry, beauty and tranquillity. When I compose a photograph I have a vision of the final image. Often it may contain much less than the actual scene photographed. If anything is central to my work it is the sky. Some days I get a strong feeling that the light and clouds may unite to form the picture I seek. My preferred colour space is Black and white in a minimalist fashion.
