Description

I encountered fierce winds on this afternoon near Hofn, Iceland which required special care to prevent sand scratches on my lens, camera, and face. The benefit of the winds was that it erased many of the foot prints that I had found on previous trips to these dunes and discouraged visitors. Somewhere out there my hat is still blowing around. The Vestrahorn Mountains rise 1500 ft. from the ocean and are surrounded by volcanic black sand beaches.
