Tiny Little Treasure Boxes from Iceland No. 6


Tiny Little Treasure Boxes from Iceland No. 6

from 25.00

While driving along the Golden Circle in Iceland we came across wonderful farms set against hilltops and mountains.  Despite the cool climate and restricted growing season, a variety of food crops such as potatoes, turnips, carrots, cabbage, kale, and cauliflower are grown.  In most of the photos in the series the blue sky acts as the backdrop for the buildings, but in this particular photo, the building almost blends into the hillside but the orange-red rooftop stands out as well as the blue barrel to the right of the door.  In my mother’s Christmas village, she used houses of different sizes to create perspective with smaller ones in the back and larger ones up front. I love the tiny houses in the distance behind the barn, up in the hillside providing perspective. But really is the color of the rooftop and the blue sky that make this setting special.

I visited Iceland in April of 2018, a time when winter was still looming and spring was still a few months away.  White patches of snow occasionally gave way to a brown landscape. The blue sky appeared in beautiful contrast to the barren land against which the houses off in the distance provided signs of life.  From a distance the scene reminds me of the winter villages my Mom would set up around Christmas where little box houses would sit among cotton "snow" and miniature trees would be placed throughout creating a magical winter scene.
