Reynisdrangar - sea stacks at Vik
My husband and I traveled around the periphery of Iceland (on Ring Road) over a 9-day trip this summer. This was shot on the second day of our road-trip at Vik as we went anticlockwise (starting from Reykjavik) around the island. The village of Vík (or Vík í Mýrdal) is the southernmost village in Iceland and has a killer black sand (volcanic soil) beach. Since lupine grow all over Iceland during summer, they made a perfect antidote to the dark, moody Reynisdrangar - sea stacks at Vik. There's a cozy (a little pricey though) restaurant called "Strondin" by the beach from where you can view the stacks too. Vik has a beautiful and modest red and white colored church located at the base of mountains. There's also a sculpture called "For" (Voyage) facing the beach that commemorates long standing fishing trade between England and Iceland in Northern Atlantic including cod wars between the two countries.
