Kirkjufell is a 463m high mountain on the north coast of Iceland's Snaefellsnes peninsula. Januay 2018. I've been to this spot a few times now and was looking to get a slightly different, albeit not unique view on the mountain. There was subtle colour in the clouds, approaching a sunset that didn't happen so glad I got here when I did. This is shot using a LEE big stopper, 55s exposure.

Superb image - a feeling of solitude, peace and the cold, and a wonderful reflection to boot.

Excellent shot, like the reflection and movement of the water on the foreground and so beautifully processed...

I would have said that this was an old volcanic plug but I noticed it was all sedimentary layers to the top.
Wonderful sceneSmile

Wonderful sceneSmile

It is a 3my old lava flow basement with a mix of thin sedimentary layers along with lava flows and then a rough volcanic topping called Hyaloclastite - this is a volcaniclastic accumulation or breccia consisting of glass (from the Greek hyalus) fragments (clasts) formed by quench fragmentation of lava flow surfaces during submarine or subglacial extrusion. The sedimentary layers will be formed from the erosion of existing lava flows and deposited in water, probably at some time when the sea levels were higher and the crust will have been pushed further down in to the earths mantle due to the sheer weight of rock...
