Vesturhorn

date February 06, 2014 location Vesturhorn, Iceland

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.
