Kirkjan (2xPiP)

Kirkjan (2xPiP) 

Kirkjan (Church) is part of Hljóðaklettar (Echo Rocks) in the gorge of Jökulsá á Fjöllum river. Hljóðaklettar belong to an old crater row which has been heavily eroded by jökulhlaups so that only the plugs are left. They display columnar basalt in a fascinating wealth of shapes.

Kirkjan (Kirche) ist Teil der Hljóðaklettar (Echofelsen) in der Schlucht des Flusses Jökulsá á Fjöllum. Die Hljóðaklettar sind Teil einer alten Kraterreihe und wurden durch Gletscherläufe stark erodiert, sodass nur noch die Schlote stehenblieben. Der Säulenbasalt zeigt einen Formenreichtum, der selbst in Island selten ist.


Here you can just about see two people for size reference!

Such wonderful shapes and textures................and this B/W image brings them out perfectly. Utterly stunning!

The image in the first PiP really shows the scale of this phenomenon and the second PiP would make a fascinating image in it's own right..!!

Great work Gudrun.
