Kolgrafarfjörður is a fjord on the northern coast of the Snæfellsnes peninsula, on Iceland’s west coast. The whole peninsula is an amazingly beautiful place, with landscapes that change dramatically on every turn of the road.

This photo was taken from the side of the road, from the aptly named Kolgrafarfjörður Viewpoint, looking south towards the centre of the peninsula. It was late autumn (October of 2013) and the weather was cold but snow wasn’t yet quite reaching the lower levels, and all roads were open.
