Mælifell Mountain || Snæfellsnes Peninsula, Iceland
One of my favorite shots from Iceland, but not because of the typical things you associate with the island like a crazy behind-the-waterfall shot or a double moonbow beneath the northern lights. Instead, the massive scale of the dormant volcano is put into scale by the tiny farmhouse beneath it and the impressive 260 ft high Bjarnarfoss waterfall dropping partway down the side. Further realizing this was shot over 2 miles away from the mountain among its moss covered lava flows helps set the scene. And those green patches down the mountain under the waterfall? Well that's this particular landowner's attempt at re-introducing a forest to the island after the Vikings cut them all down over 1,000 years ago.
