Skaftafell

Skaftafell

Gunnar Petursson , July 2011

This picture is taken in Skaftafell, Iceland when my friend came to visit me. After hiking to the peaks at an altitude of 1100 m, the fog and rain finally cleared to reveal the most amazing view of the surrounding outlet glaciers from the Vatnajökull glacier. The black colour seen on the glacier is ashfall from the eruption in Grimsvotn, around 30 km from that place, earlier in that year.
