The last rays of the setting sun color Mount Esja on a cold winter day

The view north from Reykjavik, the capital of Iceland, is dominated by Mount Esja (913 meters tall/2,999 feet), lying about 10 kilometers north of the city across the bay. The mountain looks very different in different seasons, but I have always felt it was most beautiful in winter, when it has a dusting of snow like here.
