Vesturhorn mountain is perhaps the best beach and mountain combination ever. The landscape at Stokksnes provides rich foregrounds in the sand dunes, tussocks and shore. The beach has a combination of smooth black sand and well shaped rocks. The sand dunes and tussocks provide rich lines and little reflection pools. The rocky shore can add movement and drama to sea-scapes. The smooth sand can provide great reflections of Vesturhorn mountain in most conditions.
As long as the mountain is visible, great landscape photographs can be made in most conditions.
If you are lucky enough to have unspoilt, wet sand, the sand flats can provide valuable Landscape foreground.
After heavy rains or melting snow, the sand dunes are worth exploring thoroughly for these little pools.
