Gosh it really would. At the right time of year you could spend the day watching puffins and the night watching the aurora borealis. No shortage of inspiration!

Awesome image - love the seagull in the foreground and the house that looks so tiny in the midst of the natural environment around it. The detail in the rocks is amazing.

Montreal, QC - Canada

Wow! what a location! Great shot! My brain keeps wondering if a square crop could add even more power to this image, so the house and the gull are in opposite strong points?

Peta Thames replied:

Ooh, good suggestion. I'm having a play with that now, and on the one hand, including more of the island to the right adds to the sense of isolation of the house, but you're right that the bond between the house and the seagull is much stronger in a square crop. Undecided now which I prefer. Thank you for the idea though.

Wow, what a gorgeous scene, and I love that you captured the seagull so clearly coming toward you! How incredible it must be to wake up with that view every morning! f/v

Peta Thames replied:

I was travelling on a ferry and the seagull was conveniently gliding beside us at the same speed, which helped! I sometimes look at this image when city life is getting a bit much, and daydream...

Most Peaceful House In The World

Description

Escape the Rat Race. Vestmannaeyjar, or Westman Islands, Iceland, is where this lone house stands, with only seagulls and other ocean wildlife for company.

This solitary house is located on Ellidaey Island, which is part of the Vestmannaeyjar group just off the south coast of mainland Iceland. It is not actually a regularly inhabited house, but a hunting lodge in use during puffin hunting season (they're cute, but they're not rare!). The house has no electricity and no internal plumbing, but it does have a sauna for those cold Icelandic nights (and can you imagine a better place to watch the northern lights from!).

Three hundred years ago, five families did live on this remote island, living on cattle they raised on the island and the abundant fishing in the area. However, during the 1930s, the last permanent residents moved away, as the island became increasingly impractical to survive on. The hunting lodge as it now stands was built in 1953, and is not open to public, but used exclusively by those who built it, the Ellidaey Hunting Association.

Thanks to Spot Cool Stuff for information on the lone house of Iceland (http://travel.spotcoolstuff.com/iceland/secluded-architecture/ellidaey-island).
