NOTE: Llamas - I think they're stupid so you don't have to give them to me but you can for all I care and if you want them you can ask, I don't mind.
Interests
Whew, I totally forgot about this journal function here. In fact, I'm giving dA a lot less time since I screwed up the courage to start a flickr site It's always been a bit intimidating to me since I've only ever see breathtaking masterpieces of photography coming from there. But thankfully I've discovered there are actually people closer to my level there also.

Summer seems to be finally waking up in Iceland after a pretty dreadful winter so I should be able to go out with the camera more, except that I'm extremely busy in my current internship at the Reykjavík Grapevine which is a magazine about Iceland for tourists. If you're interested in Icelandic country and nation I encourage you to follow it (shameless advertising FTW!).

I'm particularly proud of an article I wrote about my childhood in rural Iceland, called 'Lumpfish Life: Growing up in a remote fishing village.' 

Please read it! :D

Lumpfish 2
This is what lumpfish (see previously uploaded deviation) looks like during processing. Here it's drying on a rack in a traditional fashion.

Lumpfish 1 by ragnaice
Lumpfish 1

This "lovely" fish is a lumpfish, a part of my father's catch. Every spring the Icelandic fishermen start the lumpfish season.

Lumpfish is mostly valuable for its roes but the fish itself is also edible although considered as 'eccentric' Icelandic food.

There are two traditional ways of processing it: the female fish is half-dried and probably comes third on the list of smelliest Icelandic fish after rotten shark and skate. The male fish on the other hand is salted and smoked and is pretty delicious.

This photo was taken to accompany an article about growing up in an Icelandic fishing village which I wrote for the Reykjavík Grapevine, a magazine/news paper about Iceland in English. You can read the article here if you're interested:
