Black Sand Beach and Vik - Iceland

Saturday, July 20, 2013

After our airplane excursion, we had just enough time to stop at Reynisfjara Beach before the sun set. Basalt stack rocks, caves, and weird rock fingers rising out of the water. The tide was too far in so we couldn't explore as much of the caves as we would have liked. It's a real gem in the area.

We stayed one more night in Vík before heading east along the coast toward Höfn

Coming up... icebergs!

  13. The building with the red roof, is that a church? You took very nice pictures of it using tilt and shift technique because when applied not properly it can create a weird-looking picture. Love your pictures as always!
