Two days ago I arrived in Rykjavik, Iceland for three weeks of running props for an independent film: Family Reunion (Góðir Gestir at http://www.no9productions.com/blog/).
We've been location scouting and getting acclimated - and part of that is to the < 60 ºF climate. Everywhere here, the mountains are in the background, and often thick mist or ocean.
The suburbs of Reyjkavik seen from atop the Pearl - a dome built on four massive water towers.
Looking past colorful, iron-sided and -roofed homes to the ocean.
Today is the first we've had much sun - it's been grey and dark - which draws out the wildness of the mountains and the quiet of the streets. But there is still color every where. I find it in murals, alleys and corners of potential locations and in the buildings and the sheen of bright blonde hair.

The Pearl. The grey pillars are water towers. At the top is a rotating restaurant.
