Photographer's Note

This is another one of those subjects I knew about before leaving Canada, in preparation for Iceland.

I did a lot of research for abandoned subjects, and I found this ship online. So you know what I had to do, I hunted it down. Clicking on the MAP feature will show you how remote this area is, its far far away from the main tourist roads - and worth every bit of effort finding it.

This steel ship is from Norway, completed in 1912. Originally it was a whaling ship and it operated in that realm until after WWII. When more and more restrictions and laws were enforced for whaling, the ship switched to fishing Herring off the coasts of Iceland.

It was run aground in 1981 and has been left here ever since.

There are a couple more photos in the WS showing its rust, its holes, its damage. I may post another main post as i have many shots to share. Thanks for looking and I hope you enjoy these abandoned subjects.
