While you’ve probably seen dozens of images of it here on Instagram, it’s very different when you see it up close. The wreckage of a US Navy DC-3 has become one of Iceland’s most iconic sites. Perhaps it’s the stark visual of seeing this 50 year-old skeleton on a volcanic sand beach or maybe it’s imagining the haunting experience of the pilots. Whatever the reason, a visit to the island’s south shore is incomplete without making the journey and paying homage to it. What’s fascinating to me is that every single photograph of the plane looks different. Camera lens & perspective, weather, time of day, sun, moon, stars and northern lights all cast different textures, tones & hues on it. Here’s my favorite version from the day I visited during a crazy 24 hour adventure with some close friends.
