Stóra Sandvík sunset │ Iceland Landscape winter from air

Documenting Iceland (2019)

by: Rafn Sig,-

The Cove south of Valahnjúkur features a spectacular boulder black beach and Lake formed by the rampant storms of the North Atlantic, and farther to the north the black sand dunes at Stóra Sandvík are a blunt reminder that the wind blows fearlessly through Reykjanes. It also hosts a small (~1 km2) high-temperature geothermal area with small steaming vents and bubbling solfatars.

However, these hot springs are only a shadow of what they used to be, partly because the area is now utilized for power generation.

As a native photographer I feel responsible to leave all I can behind to show how it looked like, with my photography, before it’s too late.
