Ólafsfjörður, IS

Lo' and behold the lovely and remote town of Ólafsjörður, Iceland.  Nestled in the mouth of a fjord on the Tröllaskagi (troll!) peninsula, this fishing town was once only connected via a road around the mountain from the 1940s until a (scary) one-lane tunnel trough the mountains was built to Dalvík. A tunnel connecting the town westward to Siglufjörður was built recently in 2010. 
I'll be here for the next month staying at the Listhús artist residency hoping to bang out some inspired collages, hike over the mountains, discover magical lakes and stare dumb-faced at the most beautiful elfin Icelandic girl at the cash of the grocery store.
In the meantime, I leave you with a snippet of the stunning views, some plant life and the fluffiest sheep that ever crossed my path.
