Vestrahorn, West-Horn, is a mountain on the promontory between Skarðsfjörður and Papafjörður, visible from Stokknes. The steep slopes are made of gabbro-rock, which is a kind of granite, so is probably, one of the few mountains in Iceland that is not made of volcanic material.

Anyway is one of the oldest mountains in the SouthEast region of Iceland and reaches a height of 454 meters (1500 feet).

 

It was a windy afternoon, the clouds were passing by very fast, the artic terns were flying around. The colours were amazing.

Vestrahorn es una montaña en el promontorio entre Skarðsfjörður y Papafjörður, visible desde Stokknes. Las empinadas laderas se componen de Gabro, que es una especie de granito, por lo que es, probablemente, una de las pocas montañas en Islandia que no es de material volcánico.

 

Del cualquier modo, es una de las montañas más antiguas de la región sureste de Islandia y alcanza una altura de 454 metros (1500 pies).

 

Era una tarde de mucho viento, las nubes pasaban muy rápido, los charranes árticos volaban alrededor. Los colores eran increíbles.
