High Winds off the Skaftafell Glacier
Skaftafellsjökull is in the Vatnajokull National Park. It's known as an 'outlet glacier' next to Skaftafell mountain. The glacier ice runs down a deep valley from the north part of Öræfajökull glacier. Skaftafellsjökull is around 10 km long and approximately 2 km wide.
On the day of my visit, there was a gale force wind blowing non-stop off the glacier, making conditions for both hiking and photography very challenging. But looking back, it was possibly the grandest, most hostile weather-wise, yet beautiful natural places I've ever been lucky enough to stand in.
