Vesturhorn

This was another one of my favorite stops on our photography tour of southern Iceland. This is Mount Vesturhorn which is not only a fascinating mountain range in and of itself, but it is surrounded by a black sand beach covered with hills on which grow straw plants.

In any other country this might seem like a strange occurrence but Iceland possesses so many unique landscapes that encountering a place like this is par for the course.
