Photographer's Note

When flying from Helsinki to New York, you fly over the northern parts of Iceland, the southern tip of Greenland and some interesting parts of Canada. The clouds covered most of Iceland, but luckily I could see the last minutes of the island many consider as one of the most beautiful in the world. Well, I took a picture when we left Iceland and later I found out it was the westernmost point of Iceland (to the right). After a bit thinking, it turns out to be the westernmost point of Europe.

So, the place you see in the picture is Látrabjarg. A few people live nearby, but it is indeed more birds than people. Látrabjarg is actually famous for being Europe's largest bird cliff, which hosts millions of birds. The closest city is Isafjordur, also located on the "panhandle" peninsula of Iceland.
