Lines on Vatnajökull

A volcanic eruption created a grey/black layer in the ice. As the ice moved, the layer folded, and show up as a curved black line where the glacier ends.

 

It looks like someone has tagged the glacier, could it be someone named "Anna"?

 

Contrast in increased somewhat to enhance the line.

Finally I found a photo showing the same pattern:
