Nice Lad in a Land of Ice

Recently I traveled to Reykjavik, Iceland.
The land there is mostly uncultivated by the hands of humans, which I favor over over-populated and over-visited traditional tourist locales.
Coarse like my hair is the landscape.
Your mind changes shape when you gaze at this worldly maze.


This is the Hallgrimskirkja Church of Reykjavik
Wikipedia says about the church:
Largest church in Iceland and the sixth tallest architectural structure in Iceland
Guðjón Samúelsson's design of the church was commissioned in 1937. He is said to have designed it to resemble the basalt lava flows of Iceland's landscape.
It took 38 years to build the church. Construction work began in 1945 and ended in 1986
The church is also used as an observation tower

Careful. LOKAD will eat you. LOKAD isn't too fond of visitors.

I recommend Iceland to anyone who wants to take a trip to a place that has no highly known landmarks.
It's a land that forces you to explore your surroundings.
