This is a view from the top of Grábrók Crater, a big volcanic crater in Western-Iceland. The weather was cloudy all day, but this gave me a perfect opportunity to take a dramatic picture of the landscape.

Bonjour Kristof.
Très bonne dimension donné à cette image par un format allongé.
L’éloignement de tout est bien intégré dans ce cadrage.
Bonne journée.

Hi Kristof
What a nice panaromic view
Great perspective

Hi Kristof,
Excellent panorama, the whole area looks very big and secluded. Would love to own a property there, would be so peaceful. Looks like you had a perfect vantage point to take this from, anyone would swear that you were hand-gliding! :). Very nice natural colours also.


Nice view, great to use the panoramic format too.. Great scenery.


Hi Kristof,

Hi Kristof,

Hi Kristof,

Fantastic panorama and taken from an excellent viewpoint. The dramatic clouds add to the mood of isolation for the small village below. I like how the road to the left goes off into infinity.



hello Kristof
very nice view my friend
great capture , excellent perspective and POV
best regards

Hello Kristof,
Indeed this is a massive crater! It appesars to be nearly the size of a super volcano at one time in its historied past. Through time most of the features have softened, but the rock formation-bulge that still is evident at the bottom of the image is a dead giveaway that it was a volcano.
Is that a geothermal plant towards the center of the image?
Good capture...
