Photographer's Note

Panoramic view taken with my iPhone 6 of the volcano crater. It was extremely windy at the summit. Saxhóll Crater is all that remains of an extinct volcano. The crater rises 109 meters above sea level. Located off of Road 574 in Snæfellsjökull National Park, Saxhóll Crater is estimated to have erupted 3,000 years ago, and much of the surrounding landscape is the result of that eruption. The collapsed core of the crater is fairly deep, and the rim around the crater offers 360 degree views of the surrounding terrain of Snæfellsjökull National Park.
