This is the famous "Hallgrímskirkja" wich towers over downtown Reykjavík
(i.e.: Hallgrím's church).

Hallgrímur Pétursson
(i.e.: Hallgrim, son of Peter)
, was one of Iceland's most famous poets, -and composed (amongst other things) the national anthem of Iceland.
(Wich is in fact a hymn).

Oops.....
....my mistake!
....(As Ander quite rightly pointed out):
The national hymn of Iceland is indeed composed by
Matthías Jochumsson ! !

Great photo.
But a little correction.
The national anthem was written by Matthías Jochumsson and the music by Sveinbjörns Sveinbjörnsson
