iceland 2014 (1)

i spent three and a half remarkable weeks in iceland this summer, taking three groups of mostly german tourists around the island. despite less than perfect weather conditions we all had a great time and saw fantastic and unforgettable places.

this image opens a "series" of pictures from iceland. it was taken near a village on the snæfellsnes peninsula called arnastapi, which is well-known for its rugged and exceptional shoreline, with steep cliffs, exposed basalt columns, deep inlets and natural bridges.
