Föstudagsmyndir: Fyrsta vetrardag bar upp á 22. október í ár. Þar með lauk Haustmánuði og við tók Gormánuður. Ég þakka fyrir blítt haust með myndum úr sveit og borg. Góða helgi!
Friday photos: The official First Day of Winter in Iceland was October 22 (always on a Saturday, late in October). Thus the “Month of Autumn” / Haustmánuður came to an end, and the month with the less attractive name: “Month of Gor” / Gormánuður started – all according to the old Norse calendar. The name is connected to the season of slaughtering and feasting in the early winter: gor meaning the half-digested forage from an animal’s innards. Yes, nice.
I bid the mild autumn 2022 farewell with photos from both farm (above) and city (below). Enjoy the weekend!
