Remember to keep tagging your photographs with the hashtag #GVpics for a chance at becoming the winner of next week’s competition!

The vikings are approaching on the Draken Harald Hårfagre.

Actually, this is the The Viking Dragon, a legit Viking ship, the largest built in recent times. It's on a Transatlantic crossing from Norway to the US. #iceland #atlanticocean #vikings #reykjavik #ocean #twilight #skylovers #love #dragonharaldfairhair @visitreykjavik #travel #travelphotography #gvpics #vikinglongship #haraldfairhair @icelandmonitor
