Meet Your Owner


Arnar Matthiasson and Björg Örlygsdóttir from Kaenuvogsmegin, Iceland

"As I write this, the whole of Iceland is covered in snow, it's dark for 15 hours a day and minus five degrees Celsius. Lovely though it is (apart from the occasional gales and blizzards), after a few months of darkness, you start dreaming of sitting somewhere in the sun with a book and a drink.

Owner's Photo Competition

And the winner is… Bruce Severns from Melbourne Australia

In Bruce’s words “we were staying in residence number 20, and while eating breakfast I looked up and there was the view perfectly framed. Over the years I have developed a bit of an eye for framing photos (often through doorways/windows). Initially I had zoomed in to just have the view without the accoutrements but realised that they added more perspective and interest.
