Photographer's Note

Back to Iceland: a view from the edge of the extinct Hverfell volcano cone in the Myvatn-Krafla area of northern Iceland.
In the distance is lake Myvatn.

Extra note
One thing I forgot to mention is the graffiti in the bottom of the crater. Unfortunately it's become a popular tourist sport to walk/run down into the bottom of the crater, write a message in the sand/ash and then photograph it. The result is that the interior of the crater is now seriously defaced. According to my Lonely Planet guide, the bottom of the crater is now closed to tourists to prevent damage to the geological formation but there was no evidence of this when I was there.
Being a wide-angle view the graffiti is not obvious in this shot, but you can still just about make out grey lines in the bottom of the crater.
