At the now iconic Solheimasandur plane wreck!
.
Back in 1973, a US navy DC plan crashed on this black beach near the Vik region. The remains of the crashed plane were never removed and it soon became a point of interest for tourists. The landmark's popularity saw a surge after being featured in popular media - be it Justin Bieber shooting a music video or SRK pulling off his typical pose in Gerua on top of the plane!
.
About the click - I wanted to get a full frame click of the crashed plane with the sun setting in behind, but couldn't due to hordes of tourists posing in front of the plane!
.
After a patient ten minutes or so in vain, I climbed to top of the plane, thereby photobombing everyone posing around the plane. Sadistic pleasures :D
