Photographer's Note

Near Vik on the south coast of Iceland, on the black volcanic beach at Reynisfjara which is backed by this incredible stack of basalt columms.
They really look like a giant church organ.
The black-pebble beach of Reynisfjara forms a 2.5km spit, extending from Reynisfjall almost to Dýrholaey.
Reynisfjara is even more beautifully situated than the beach at Vík, but less frequented. On the eastern edge of the Reynisfjara, at the base of Reynisfjall, is the phenomenal basalt sea cave Hálsanefshellir.
