In 2003 Reykjavík’s down town and especially Laugavegur, its main shopping street, seemed more like a ghost town than bustling centre. Many shops and boutiques had moved up town to malls where the weather is more stable and parking space in plenty. Icelanders like to do their shopping in their cars. But, Laugavegur had seen its worst day and fortunately bounced back. A FILM BY Kristinn Petursson. MUSIC: Rainbirds by Tom Waits. MORE AT

Kveikur fra Lian

This is Kveikur and Anne Stine 🙂 I wanted to do a lot of changes on this, but I could’nt. But please enjoy!! 🙂 I made this in 2007, so he is around 7-8 years old now, and as far as I know, they are doing pretty ok in competitions 🙂 The location is Wången in Sweden, Meråkerfjell Ridesenter and Stord in Norway 🙂


The bay pony is my Icelandic horse Maari 🙂 and the rest are part of her pony club troup. Maari is being ridden by my friend’s eleven year old daughter Anni. The other stars in the video are grey arab mare Silver, grey warmblood/quarterhorse mare Vienna and chestnut morgan/arab mare Lily. Music by Mary Ann Kennedy (Mares)
