Petrified Trees Iceland

By Tonyd3  
These old trees are actually the remains of an old shack on the beach in the south-east of Iceland at a well known black beach formed by volcanic ash called Stokesness, the mountain is called the Vesterhorn standing at almost 450 meters high, it is a much-loved location for photographers and has been used in the game of thrones, where an Icelandic grass village has been built at the foot by the film crew. The Vesterhorn is sometimes called Batmans Cave and even when the sky is clear most likely the mountain will be cloud covered. been here several times and you always get a different image, a wide angle lens is a must here.

Thanks for the clicks comments and user awards on yesterdays images, as always I appreciate your time.

As our tour driver explained, there are no trees in Iceland. Anything you see has been imported.
He then added ...
"What do you do if you get lost in a forest in Iceland? ... Stand up!"
