Photographer's Note

We continue to drive on road 1 in the eastern fjords and a few kilometres after my previsous shot we arrive on this black sand beach surrounded by dark mountains. Not easy to find names of places in Iceland, anyway I found two names for this beach : Starmýri and Dalkur. But I don't know which one is the good one ! Our icelandic guide told to us that the basalt rock on the beach is a former lava cap. A very long time ago there used to be a volcano here, but it was totally destroyed by erosion ... except this lava cap that is composed with a stronger stone. I applied a grey graduated filter in Lightroom to enhance the sky.
