Vestrahorn is a beautiful mountain on the South East coast of Iceland. It is a 15 minute drive from the fishing town of Höfn and the Höfn airport. The town is a 6 hour drive from Reykjavik, but the airport can be reached by plane in an hour. The majority of great photographs of Vesturhorn are taken from the beach at Stokksnes where the N.A.T.O. base is.

Cloudy conditions. Vestrahorn works well without any light.


This photo was taken in October before the snow. The volcanic sand tussocks provide the landscape photographer with plenty of rich foreground and the mountain is a highly dependable background, even in cloudy conditions.
