The best time to capture the sunset at Kirkjufell mountain would be from the beginning of july and until the end of august. The scenery can be quite amazing as the sun sets into the ocean. See this article for more information about the Midnight sun in Iceland.

In Grundarfjörður the sun disappears in november and the residents of Grundarfjörður can not see it again until the beginning of february. Often they celebrate this by making pancakes when they get the glimpse of the sun above the mountains that surround the town.
But as one of the people living in Grundarfjörður it's all worth the wait as the sunsets can be quite spectacular in the summertime.
This is me embracing the sunset on 2. august 2014.
And finally a timelapse of the sunset on 2. august 2014. 30 minute long sunset displayed in 40 seconds. Enjoy!
