Dyrhólaey is a 120-meter high promontory, not far from Vík. The place got its name from the massive arch that the sea has eroded from the headland. (The name literally means "door-hole"). When the sea is calm, big boats can sail through it.

From the top of Dyrhólaey there is a great view of the Reynisfjara beach . The headland is thought to have been made in an underwater volcanic eruption late in the glacial period, not unlike the eruption of Surtsey. Several outcrops are in the sea, the highest one called Háidrangur ("High column") is 56 m high. Dyrhólaey has been a natural reserve since 1978. The promontory is widely known among sailors as "Portland", and English trawler fishermen used to call it "Blow hole". There are also amazing rock formations all along the beach where one can climb.

The sepia tones of this image are totally natural, there was a lot of ash from the Eyjafjallajokull volcano blowing in the wind that day, which turned the sun light pink.

If you check it, this is not a only sepia image, you can find some bright blues on the ocean and sky, and some dark greens on the rocks at the background.

Again, a long exposition captured well the mood at the place, shaping the big waves and catching the ash and sand on the air.

El Dyrhólaey es un promontorio de 120 metros de alto, cerca de Vik. El lugar obtiene su nombre del arco que el mar ha erosionado bajo la península en la que se encuentra (El nombre significa literalmente "puerta - agujero"). Cuando el mar está en calma, incluso los barcos grandes pueden navegar a través de él.

Desde lo alto del Dyrhólaey, se puede apreciar una gran vista de la playa Reynisfjara. Existen formaciones de rocas puntiagudas creadas por erupciones volcánica submarinas, de entre los cuales el más alto llamado Háidrangur ("alta columna "), que tiene 56m de altura. Dyrhólaey ha sido una reserva natural desde 1978.

Los tonos sepia de esta imagen son totalmente naturales, había un montón de cenizas del volcán Eyjafjallajökull soplando en el viento esa tarde, que le daban a la luz del sol ese aspecto rosa.

Si se aprecia bien, la imagen no está compuesta solo por tonos sepias y negros, sino que se pueden encontrar algunos azules suaves en el océano y el cielo, y verdes oscuros en las rocas del fondo.

Una vez más, una larga exposición ayudó a capturar el ambiente del lugar, la trayectoria de las grandes olas y capturó la ceniza y arena en el aire.

    The texture of the ground in the lower right portion of the photo is amazing. However, the way you've captured the light and water makes it seem like this is a dream and the scenery is being swept away before our very eyes. We must enjoy it while it lasts! Really amazing work.
