Built in 1896, Silfrastaðirkirkja is an example of much of Iceland's Christian heritage. Beautifully constructed small churches located on stunning landscapes, from coast to coast, in every small community.
In stark contrast to the majority of black sand beaches in Iceland, Skarðsvík, secluded in the northwestern tip of the Snæfellsnes Peninsula, resembles a Mediterranean shoreline with its beautiful turquoise waters and golden brown sand. Skarðsvík can be quite aggressive and even dangerous when high tide and strong winds play together and anger the Ocean; however, I was very fortunate as I was able to capture the beach on a beautiful calm day at low tide.
Fjaðrárgljúfur is a magnificent and massive canyon spanning about two kilometres long and 100 meters deep. Located in Southern Iceland near Kirkjubæjarklaustur, Fjaðrárgljúfur is a little hike to get to, but it is well worth it. On the upper right hand side of the image stands a couple of people which give perspective to the magnitude of the canyon.
