Landscape and Panoramic Photography

Snæfellsnes, Iceland

Snæfellsnes peninsula pokes out into the northern reaches of the North Atlantic Ocean. A glacier-capped 700,000 year old stratovolcano dominates the landscape in this national park, where craters rise up out of the cooled lava flows extending out to the ocean. I drove out to the western cliffs of Snæfellsnes peninsula to photograph the waves crashing against the basalt.

    Snæfellsnes, I believe. Snæfellsjökull is the glacier, what’s left of it, on Snæfell. Should that help.
