Kirkjufell, on the northern shore of the Snæfellsness peninsula, is probably Iceland’s most distinctive mountain; an image search for “Iceland mountain” will give you hundreds of photos of this exact peak. This one is the one I took.

(Sony A65, ISO 100, f/11, 45mm [67mm equiv.], 1/100s)

You may notice that the shape of the most well-known church in Iceland, Hallgrímskirkja in Reykjavik, strongly resembles this mountain; the church was designed based on Iceland’s landscapes.

This photo is also from October of 2013 (in fact, it was taken on the same day as the one in the previous post).
