Kirkjufell Through Bleary Eyes

We had arrived in Iceland just that morning, long before the winter sun had come up. We were bone tired when our plane landed. We were far worse for the wear by the time we had driven another five hours across the island to where we would stay at the Snaefellsness Peninsula.

I got my second wind however when I learned that Kirkjufell (Church Mountain) was only 20 minutes drive from our hotel. I convinced my wife to tag along to capture some photos. The drive itself was lovely, but the eerie sight of the mountain disappearing into the clouds, with the falls running beneath was spectacular. That's when I got my third wind.

Here's a bit of what we saw...
