Dyrhˇlaey Lighthouse - Canon 5d w/17-40

The beautiful and windswept Dyrhˇlaey promontory in southern Iceland. This was taken looking back from the large lava arch that stretches out into the North Atlantic. When the wind is blowing it's a scary place to walk out on, feels like the strong gusts could easily lift you off your feet and into the ocean 150 metres below. It wasn't until my third visit that I dared to walk all the way out, but the views were more than worth it.

    Enlightened lighthouse well displayed. Doesn't look as cold as it is probably.
