Reykjavik from above

Getting an aerial view, be it from a building, nearby hillside or even aircraft, almost always makes for interesting photographs. This was captured at about 70 metres above the city on the observation floor of the Hallgrimskirkja church. The road off to the left is the Skólavörðustígur which leads your eye through the centre of Iceland’s capital city. Even at 2pm the November sun was very low in the sky. As you can see from the long shadow off to the right. I thought that this balances the photograph in a unique way.
