Snæfellsnes - Kirkjufell, Iceland

The name of this mountain is Kirkjufell (''Churchmount'' or should we say ''Churchill''? ;). It is on the Northern side of the Snæfellsnes peninsula (see map).

A long day of travel around this fabulous peninsula was reaching its end, so the sun stood low giving the strong blue colour of the sky and a slightly reddish hue on the clouds to the right.

 

Technical note: A polarizer was used for this photo, which by virtue of its cutting down of disturbing reflexes diminishes shadows and strengthens colours at the same time.
