The Barbed Wire Farm Fence – An Icelandic Classic
Old-fashioned barbed wire fences can be found in every corner of the Icelandic countryside. These fences mark the farmer’s land and keep the animals from straying onto the highway.
Icelanders have been farmers from the day Iceland was settled. These fences are a token of the past and give the countryside a romantic atmosphere. They’re a reminder that the old ways often still work the best!
Behind the fence in this image is the huge mountain called Hafursfell, located on the Snæfellsnes Peninsula.
