On Saturday Nov 24, 1973 a United States Navy Douglas Super DC-3 airplane was forced to land on Sólheimasandur’s black sand beach in the south of Iceland after experiencing some severe icing.
Luckily all crew members survived the crash, but the airplane’s fuselage was abandoned.
This site is now pretty touristy with people climbing all over it, inside it, taking photos. It's about a 4km walk to the crash site - you can no longer drive to it. This is a 6 minutes exposure causing the moving clouds to render themselves as streaks and it also makes people dissapear!

First built in 1703 by Bent Lárusson, who was a merchant in Búðir. It rotted down but was rebuilt by Steinunn Sveinsdóttir in 1848. In 1984, the church was moved in one piece from the old graveyard onto its current foundations. The church was renovated to the form it was thought to have had in 1848, and was re-consecrated in 1987.

Vik i Myrdal Church
Vik, Iceland - Vík lies directly south of the Mýrdalsjökull glacier, which itself is on top of the Katla volcano. An eruption of Katla could melt enough ice to trigger an enormous flash flood, potentially large enough to obliterate the entire town. The town's church, located high on a hill, is believed to be the only building that would survive such a flood.
