Dyrholaey, Iceland - Canon 5d w/17-40

Dyrhˇlaey, a spectacular promontory in southern Iceland near the town of Vik. This is one of my favourite places in Iceland, it has a special feeling about it. The views from the top are amazing. To the west the coastline stretches for miles, to the north there are mountains and the glacier Mřrdalsj÷kull, to the east there's a sweeping black sand beach and the rock stacks of Reynisdrangur. When it's not too windy you can walk out on a spur 100 metres high that reaches out to sea over a large archway eroded through the rock.

This was taken from a small cove amidst the rugged cliffs that teem with nesting birds from May-July, including the delightful puffin.
