Snaefellsjokull national park


Snæfellsjökull is a stratovolcano (typical cone-shape one) on the peninsula of Snaefellsnes, West Iceland. The volcano became famous because of Jules Verne, who selected it to be as the starting point of his  Journey to the Center of the Earth. It is covered by a (melting) glacier and it can be seen from the coast (and some people say from Reykjavik in case of good weather). The hexagonal columns of volcanic origin create the characteristic coastline. Several bird colonies also inhabit those cliffs.

Again I decided to use black and white to enhance the shapes and contrasts of nature. Hope it works fine 🙂
