Iceland’s use of exterior wood made it seem like a Scandinavian country.
Its limited ability to grow its own wood made it seem like an Arctic country.
I guess both of those make sense.
Tree roots and the pattern of tributaries in a watershed bear an uncommon similarity.
Jim – An excellent point and one that had entirely escaped me. Here, for example, is the Mackenzie delta. I need a drone camera . . .
I wonder if this will let me paste in a photo
Apparently not. I’ll send you the jpg separately.
Jim – Well, there’s often a way . . . Yup, this works.
I love the weathered blue-painted boards, which look approximately like what I did to my barn-board kitchen cabinets to the consternation of the sons who built them and favored the dark wood. How very nice to find a confirmation for my personal taste and the Scandinavian link that probably explains why I made that unusual choice.
Laurna – Interesting. I saw unpainted/weathered boards, and no blue. Well, they do say that colour is not an objective phenomenon but a human experience. Certainly the aesthetic that we saw in many places seemed distinctively Scandinavian to us. The small towns along the coast were, with one exception, pristine, even if not affluent.
Excellent photos! Great composition and colour.
Judith – Thanks! Composition is a never-ending pursuit, I find. 🙂

🏙Photovoltaics are found in systems as small as cell phone battery packs, or as large as fields. They all work on the same basic principle converting light into usable energy. #engineerthesun, #solarenergy, #PV, #photovoltaics, #energyfuture, #pvsystems https://g2voptics.com/photovoltaics-solar-cells/what-is-photovoltaics/?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=G2V+PV+Article:+What+is+Photovoltaics
A welcome statement. But regrettably couched in partisan terms about how we mustn't be like those awful right-wingers. Intolerance is not some alien invasion of the left. Evil lies in the human heart, and utopian movements are especially liable to intolerance of others' failings. https://twitter.com/Harpers/status/1280495875165425670
A statement signed by 150 people incl. Bill T. Jones, Wynton Marsalis, Jennifer Finney Boylan, Noam Chomsky, J.K. Rowling, Margaret Atwood, and Salman Rushdie expresses concern over the illiberal trend intensified by our national reckoning.
