  • Helgafell Volcano │Iceland Landscape in Winter

    Helgafell Volcano │Iceland Landscape in Winter

    Helgafell, or “Holy Mountain,” eas formed in the late Ice Age when a volcano erupted under a glacier, today Helgafell Mountain anchors Hafnarfjörður. Rising low in the distance beyond the town, this dense sandstone and lava mound is often referred to as the town's mountain. Despite standing only 338 m (1300 feet) high, the panoramic view from the summit is picture-perfect with views of Reykjavík, Flaxafói Bay, the Reykjanes Peninsula, and of course, Hafnarfjörður.

    Búðakirkja Church in the twilight │ Snæfellsnes

    Búðakirkja church was erected in 1703 by Bent Lárusson, who was a merchant in Búðir. It rotted down but was rebuilt by Steinunn Sveinsdóttir in 1848. Legend has it that she did this following a request by Bent Lárusson in a dream. In 1984, the church was moved in one piece from the old graveyard onto its current foundations. The church was renovated to the form it was thought to have had in 1848, and was re-consecrated in 1987. The church is a listed building owned by the National Museum of Iceland, but it is in the care of the Búðir parish.
  • Bláhnúkur Mountain in Landmannalaugar │ Iceland Highland win

    Bláhnúkur Mountain in Landmannalaugar │ Iceland Highland win

    Blåhnúkur is a 943m high rhyolite mountain in Landmannalaugar. It is thought that the mountain was formed from eruptions under a glacier. It is made up of a lot of black columnar basalt with green and gray obsidian. The side is steep but a well-trodden and clear path ascends to the top where there is an azimuth scale view finder. The glacier during the ice age had been about 400 m thick when Bláhnúkur was built up. Instead of becoming a table mountain with a flat top, the lava that poured out at the end of the ice age ran down into ice tunnels at the top of the volcano.

    Colors of Landmannalaugar Highlands │ Iceland Landscape photo

    The colors in Landmannalaugar are sometimes far from all realities. Often it is these little motifs that we overlook because nature as a whole and the mountains are so colorful and take every person's mind. Inside the ravines and beneath our feet, there is a frame worth clicking. This colorful picture is from a place where most people walk past and will never enjoy. We should not be in a hurry when we visit this beautiful place and we should try to go to places that are not commonly visited as there are often beautiful colorful pearls to be found.

    Iceland Landscape Aerial winter photo in the twilight. Reykjanes Iceland On the Vatnsleysuströnd beach were many small farms, which usually were several in rural areas near the best landings. Powerful rowing was from many farms for centuries, as the fishing grounds were nearby. During the winter season, the guards from other settlements were in addition to locals. In addition to the extinction, farmers owned cows and sheep and had their livestock in the summer in the seals in Strandarheiði. In the 19th century, the number of people on the shore increased, but as landings declined, mainly due to British trawlers, the number of people decreased again. However, it changed again when the boat launch began and the fish could be retrieved further.

  • Festafjall Mountain eroded subglacial volcano- Iceland.

    Festafjall Mountain eroded subglacial volcano- Iceland.

    It is unusual to see cross-sections of Puffin Mountains as luminous in their interior design as in Festafjall Mountain. Marine erosion has been there. The bedrock of the mountain is pebbles and there is an ore. The mountain itself is made of pebbles, but the ore in the top. The dials have a reddish bump. The cliff, Festi, goes up through the base and the pebbles up to the gray rock cap, clearly visible from a distance. Festarfjall is a step, made on a short eruption in the glacier and Festin is the adaptive vein. On the north side, the pebbles in Festarfjall rest on older and lower steps. The crater in it is north of Festafjalli, half buried under it. The distance will not be determined whether the older step is reflected in the surf climbing. The story says that Festi is a neckless of a woman-troll. The story also says that it is impossible to walk on the beach down below without getting wet!

    Stóra Sandvík │ Iceland, winter, landscape, twilight photo

    The Cove south of Valahnjúkur features a spectacular boulder black beach and Lake formed by the rampant storms of the North Atlantic, and farther to the north the black sand dunes at Stóra Sandvík are a blunt reminder that the wind blows fearlessly through Reykjanes. It also hosts a small (~1 km2) high-temperature geothermal area with small steaming vents and bubbling solfatars. However, these hot springs are only a shadow of what they used to be, partly because the area is now utilized for power generation.
