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.
Created by a large basaltic lava fissure eruption 2300 years ago, the beautiful eutrophic Lake Mývatn, in Northern Iceland, is home to a vast array of waterbirds. This image was taken from the west bank of Slúttnes Island looking out to Vindbelgjarfjall Mountain.
