Green power, orange skies

Greenhouses near Reykholt, Iceland

This place was visible from miles away: the lighting inside the glasshouses cast an eerie glow into the low lying clouds. Like a moth drawn to a lamp, I was powerless to resist exploring further. Row upon row of greenhouses, filled with flowers and vegetables, sat incongruously in the wilderness: powered by natural sources (either hydro or geothermal power, like most of Iceland’s energy output). A very surreal sight: it reminded me somehow of the film Silent Running.
