June 2009 - Hliderfjall and Krafla from Hverfjall, Myvatn, Northern Iceland.

Looking over the rim of the ash ring of Hverfjall to the volcanic mountains of Hliderfjall and Krafla, in the beautiful area around Lake Myvatn, this view sums up best for me the dramatic and unforgettable landscape of this part of Iceland.
Hverfjall is an ash ring, a crater formed in a huge ash eruption some 2,500 years ago, and, towering 150 metres above the surrounding land, measures some 1,200 metres in diameter.
The walk around the rim is a stroll of 2.5 kilometres in its own right..!! Hverfjall is one of the largest known ash rings on Earth.
