"tankur af síld olíu"

Up in the isolated north coast of Iceland, in an abandoned herring factory we came across these tanks that used to hold herring oil.  A view to the past.  It was in this ruin we celebrated my 50th birthday.  A very memorable day.  It is located at the head of Reykjarfjörður on the Strandir coast in the Westfjords region (Vestfirðir), in the municipality of Árneshreppur.

It is approximately 70 km away from Hólmavík (the nearest settlement of any account), 280 km from Ísafjörður and 340 km from the country's capital Reykjavík. At present it only consists of seven houses, a hotel and the ruins of a herring factory. It can be reached by car via road 643 or by plane via the nearby Gjögur Airport. - Wikipedia
