Reykjavik, Iceland, taken on January 28, 2014
The morning glow behind the Hallgrímskirkja in Reykjavik, Iceland illuminates the sky for a new day. The only thing is…this photo was taken at almost 11:30am, and the sky was still not completely bright yet! Daylight certainly is scarce and arrives late during the mid-winter in a country as northerly as Iceland!

Hallgrímskirkja – an iconic landmark in Reykjavik and one of the coolest-looking structures I’ve seen. I thought it looked like a spaceship or a Gaussian distribution, whereas others have described it as a phallic symbol. What do you think? (See the original photo in colour.)
How often do you get to see a sunrise at 10:45 in the morning? Not very often, unless you’re in Iceland in January. Watching a sunrise doesn’t have to be an excruciating ordeal at 5am. Just get up (not so) bright and (not so) early at 9am, eat a nice breakfast, grab a cup of coffee or two, and head up the Hallgrímskirkja – huge church in the middle of Reykjavik – for a grand spectacle.
