Snęfell, the mystical volcanic mountain
Snęfellsjökull (glacier) became world famous after Jules Verne described it in his book of "A Journey to the Center of the Earth" as the starting point of the journey.
The track leads from the abandoned Dagveršarį homestead towards the mountain. The horizontal line at the end of the track is the main road.
On this day I saw the old Norse gods at play. Some strange figures can be seen in the sky.

Trevor, beautiful black and white. Fantastic clouds to go along with a mysterious story. Nicely done.

Your choice for B/W gives the sky a intense dramatic effect!

Hi Trevor. Took me a few seconds to decipher this scene where ridges and clouds look like waves crashing. Powerful sky. Moody shot in this creative use of B&W.Regards. Klaudio.

Sorry I'm late in visiting your portfolio. This is a tremendous image, full of the drama of the scenery, the cloudscape, and the monochrome treatment. Can't understand why it's only received 10 points so far. It's a bona fide classic!

A fabulous B&W landscape Trevor. The details are finely captured and the large version shows off your skill very well.

Amazing view, the clouds are confunding with the mountain. Lovely sky, full of movement. The B&W adds some dramaturgy to this wonderful wild landscape.
