Looks like some whaling vessels.
What's that going off in the
background, a volcano???
It reminds me when our ship sailed
the Mediterrainean, and we went into
port off the coast of Sicily. In
the distance, Mount Etna was erupting.
Great descriptive picture!!! Thanks!

Thank you, found it on an obscure Icelandic website while researching my Skaftafell page. I rather like it too.

All the best
