There’s nothing like getting high in a church.
In Reykjavik’s 244-foot tall Hallgrimskirkja Church, guests pay 700 krona (around $7) for a lift up the steeple into the church’s clock tower with 360-degree city views, the surrounding mountainous landscape and a glimpse of art.
Each church clock faces a compass point (north, south, west, east) and have been covered with artist Jo Yarrington’s transparent photographs.
One of Iceland’s big tourist attractions is to drive the Ring Road, a 2-lane highway that traces the country’s coast and where all of Yarrington’s photos were taken.
The second set of photos are a birds eye view of Reykjavik from the bell tower on a cloudy, snowy winter day.
