Snowy Panorama of Reykjavik from Hallgrímskirkja


The morning of the 4th of October greeted me with a crisp air, clean sky, and a 8 cm thick cover of new white snow. Locals did not seem to care, they neither cleaned the streets, nor seemed bothered by the snow when driving. I was amazed. The rising sun covered the whole city in by golden light which glittered everywhere. I managed to climb the Hallgrímskirkja tower and take few pictures of the beauty between my classes. Unfortunately, the church is undergoing a reconstruction and therefore the view was severely restricted, it was not possible to take pictures for full panorama and I was not able to join two resulting pieces.

Hallgrímskirkja (named after the Icelandic poet Hallgrímur Pétursson 1614-1674) is the main church for the Reykjavík parish. It is made of concrete and its steeple is 74,5 meters high.
