🇮🇸The king of the Vikings has arrived! •
Taking this picture was pretty challenging (as most pictures in Iceland 😄). The wind was extremely strong which sent the black sand flying straight into my face and lens. I had to be quick with the tripod and camera settings. A bunch of people got stranded on the beach with their cars because the sand blew over the road leaving it blocked. I only had to walk back with a 45 degree wind lean and 5 kilos of black sand in my clothes, eyes and teeth. It wasn’t a pleasant experience but the view is magnificent!
Vesturhorn mountain is perhaps the best beach and mountain combination ever. The landscape at Stokksnes provides rich foregrounds in the sand dunes, tussocks and shore. The beach has a combination of smooth black sand and well shaped rocks. The sand dunes and tussocks provide rich lines and little reflection pools. The rocky shore can add movement and drama to sea-scapes. The smooth sand can provide great reflections of Vesturhorn mountain in most conditions.
