Things to do in Iceland when the weather is too stormy for a shoot

Today we were housebound until late afternoon due to the feisty winds, but it was the perfect day for a visit to the Icelandic post office. Lava rocks, kvann and crispy twigs are now on their way to Norway on a ship. If you happen to be in Oslo in the end of January, you can come and see them in the flesh. We can reveal the exciting facts on that soon.
