No man's land

Rough volcanic landscape on the Snæfellsnes peninsula in Iceland.

The Snæfellsjökull, covered with clouds, in the distance is a 700,000 year old stratovolcano with a glacier covering its summit.

 

The mountain is one of the most famous sites of Iceland, primarily due to the novel A Journey to the Center of the Earth (1864) by Jules Verne, in which the protagonists find the entrance to a passage leading to the center of the earth on Snæfellsjökull.(Wikipedia)
