When the daylight time is short and bright over the winter, the pink color comes along and sets an incredibly beautiful look on the landscape. These days are among the more beautiful ones seen in the Westfjords.
In the second part of January, the days start to lengthen and the pink color in the middle of the day is about to fade away. Snaefjallastrond has a thick white mantle all the way to the cliffs and Ísafjörður Bay is calm.
Ísafjörður Bay is not always so innocent. There can be bad weather that has taken many lives over the centuries. Waiting for sailors to land ashore was once upon a time a big part of daily life in these areas. Sometimes the wait never ended.
