Fremrimenn seen from Efrimenn.

The foremost part of the Hafrafell seen between two glacier arms of Vatnajökull. (Skaftafellsjökull and Svinafellsjökull)

 

Fremrimenn got its name because of some pinnacles on the top that from below look like people. (Fremrimenn = front men) Another group of "people" further behind and higher up is called "Efrimenn" (the upper men), and from here I took this picture.

 

Close to the Skaftafell national park, Iceland. Between Skaftafell and Öræfajökull.
