Description

Volcanic black sand dunes dot the landscape near the iconic Vestrahorn Mountains near Hofn. I captured this late afternoon image after heavy rains and wind battered the coast for much of the day. Fierce winds allowed me to find pristine dunes without footprints and interesting patterns of light sand within the black sand. These peaks rise 1500 ft. above the ocean, giving an impressive feel to the relatively low mountains.
