Hljóðaklettar (3xPiP)

Hljóðaklettar (3xPiP)
Hljóðaklettar are volcanic plugs eroded by Jökulsá á Fjöllum river, showing irregularly curved basalt columns. In the background left an intact crater can be seen.

www.geothermal.is/9-hljodaklettar

Hljóðaklettar sind Teil einer Kraterreihe, die vom Fluss Jökulsá á Fjöllum erodiert wurden, sodass nur noch die Schlote mit vielfältig geformten Basaltsäulen übrig blieben. Im Hintergrund links ist ein noch intakter Krater sichtbar.

...gewatig aber es fehlt einem oft eine Größenreferenz, kein Baum, kein Mensch kein Auto

Schönen Dank, Lutz! Ja, das mit der Größenreferenz ist in Island oft ein Problem. Wir waren diesmal in Ecken, wo sehr wenig Touris sind, und hier im Nationalpark durfte auch kein Auto hin. Bäume sind die Birken im Hauptbild, die werden nicht groß... Ich bräuchte einen Meterstab oder Geologenhammer;-)

Thank you so much, Rosa! It's quite amazing how varied the area is, some bits desert like and some with birch and flowers and mushrooms!

Herzlichen Dank, Lothar! Ich hätte auch noch länger können, obwohl wir nicht wenig Zeit hatten. Nur beim Rumkraxeln sollte man aufpassen, letztes Jahr ist ein Deutscher dort ödlich verunglückt...

A beautiful and fascinating landscape...........it's almost other-worldly! This is very nicely composed and I love the contrast between the lush green and earthy brown colours. It all looks fantastic in the sunshine.

Some superb detail in the PiPs too...........and a well researched and interesting narrative. Great travel photography!

Gudrun has replied to Keith Burton
Thanks a lot, Keith! Many stretches of the river gorge are just greyish-brownish with hardly any vegetation, but some places like here are surprisingly green. Most of the greenery are birch trees, they don't get any higher!

Many thanks, Isabel! The river downstream from Dettifoss has some of the most spectacular basalt formations, you could easily spend several days there.

Muchas gracias, Mariano! Like nearly all of Iceland, but as this is the active volcanic zone it's even more pronounced.
