On top of Sveifluháls │ Iceland landscape photography

Documenting Iceland (2017)

by: Rafn Sig,-

It is a privilege to be able to go hiking in the highlands of Reykjanes and look at all the beauty once the mountain has been conquered.
No matter where you look, the beauty can be seen in so many things, everywhere. It’s in the rocks, moss, lava, lakes, volcanoes, craters, sky . . . ., it only depends on how you see it.
Having the privilege of being alone in the mountains where nothing but the beauty of nature and the bird song is disturbing, you fill your body and soul with energy and one more time you see how life can be beautiful without any coast. The beauty is free, only if you give yourself a chance to see and feel it.

Sveifluháls or Austurháls is 395 m high palagonite rigg in Reykjanesfjallgarð, west of Kleifarvatn. Steep hammers are down to Kleifarvatn. On the south and east site of the neck are high geothermal areas mainly at Krísuvík. The highest peaks at Sveifluháls are Hellutindar, Stapatindar and Miðdegishnúkar.
