Narfeyri Church

Narfeyri Church

I took this picture of a lonely church overlooking Álftafjörđur (and, if you look in the far background, Stykkishólmur) from the side of Highway 57. I saw no signs, so I have to trust my Iceland map that the name of this church is Narfeyri. At the very least, that's the name of a nearby homestead.

Iceland is full of solitary churches like this, beautiful, small, almost impossibly picturesque sanctuaries in impossibly picturesque, remote locations.
