Driftwood installation by Veiðilyesa, on the road to Djúpavík, Iceland
Iceland

This uncredited art installation sits next to Veiðilyesa fjord, alongside Strandavegur, the unmetalled road which heads north as it skirts the eastern flank of Strandir. Made from found objects (driftwood, fishing debris and other beachcombed items) it's an eye-catching and distinctive fixture on the otherwise wild and unspoilt route to Djúpavík and Krossnes.

The coastline in the West Fjords region of Iceland is littered with driftwood logs, which ocean currents carry from northern Siberia. It takes around seven years for this wood to make its way across the northern seas before being thrown up on the rocky beaches skirting the fjords in the north-west. 

Historically the wood was a valuable natural resource in a country with limited native forests: by law it belongs to the owner of the land on which it is cast up.

[This is one of the panoramas from my June 2013 trip to Iceland. You can explore the other views of this incredible country here. https://www.360cities.net/sets/iceland-june-2013 ]
