Looking East of Ólafsvik on the Búlandshöfði headland in Iceland. This is the Snaefellsjokull volcano on the Snaefellsnes peninsula.

Iceland is fantastic. I was only there for 4 days. I have to go back and spend much more time there. The most beautiful country :nod:
Thank you Francesca :D

Didn't realize you were a fantasy fan. Worthwhile occupation. And great photo, as usual.

A fantasy fan? 
Well I don't mind some fantasy but I'm not a huge fan
Why do you think that?
Because of "The land of fire and ice?"

That's just what Iceland is often described as. 

Sounds like Game Of Thrones doesn't it?

Right -- I thought it was a Game of Thrones reference. Oops. And that in conjunction w/ Dark Arch, which reminded me of Harry Potter, "defense against the Dark Arts" which is a course they have to take in Wizarding school...
Just goes to show you, any comment tells you more about the commentator than about the thing being commented on!

I could claim the Dark Arch was a clever play on words ...........but it wasn't :lol:
I like your reasoning but, alas, I wasn't thinking of fantasy when titling these pictures. 
I may well slip in the odd reference now you have mentioned it so stay on your toes. ;)

Yes, it was great to see the ice and snow in July :)
Next time I go will be later in the year so I see more snow :) 
and fewer people ;)

When I lived in Finland, at some point we had snow during my birthday, which is in June. It was surreal, but since I love snow, a wonderful birthday present!

You lived in Finland? How long for and did you like it? 
We had snow in England once in June when I was at school. 
It wasn't much snow but it was really strange :)

I did for a couple years, and I loved it! Had some personal reasons for moving back to Holland, but I am very eager to move back out to Finland again. :nod:

I lived in the East of Helsinki, which is still the city but also has a lot of nature, it's absolutely stunning there. Five minute walk from one of my favourite and very versatile photography locations... I really miss that spot!
