Description

Taken while trekking across the black sand beaches of Vik in Iceland. Because of the black, volcanic ash of the beach, the temperature of this area was several degrees warmer than the surrounding town (envision summer on the beach and winter all around). This made for amazing contrasts in the landscape between golden fields, stark black sands, and surrounding glacial snow and ice.
