Icelandic South Coast

A rugged landscape of black sand beaches (as almost all beaches in Iceland are), impressive headlands, and abundant bird life, the south coast of Iceland is truly elemental, particularly when the weather reverts more to type after a few days of sunshine.

Dyrhólaey
Epic coastal landscape with the added bonus of a puffin colony, and an obligingly stationary puffin to photograph.

Reynisfjara and Reynisdrangar
Even more epic and elementary was the black sand beach Reynisfjara and the frankly staggering rock formations of Reynisdrangar, possibly enhanced by the driving rain and wind.

Vík church
Luckily we visited this church on the hill overlooking the town of Vík twice, as the weather improved so much overnight. A lovely, lupin filled spot with panoramic views.
