Hofsjökull

Hofsjökull 

Hofsjökull is Iceland's 3rd largest glacier covering a roughly circular area of 925m". Like other Icelandic glacers it has a volcano with a huge caldera underneath and is retreating considerably.

Hofsjökull hat eine fast runde Form und ist mit 925m" Oberfläche Islands drittgrößter Gletscher. Wie bei anderen isländischen Gletschern liegt ein Vulkan mit einer riesigen Caldera unter dem Eis, das zunehmend abschmilzt.

Panorama taken from Sprengisandur looking SW, stitched from 4 photos,
EXIF:1/160• f/11.0 • 70.0 mm • ISO 100, Canon EOS 6D, EF24-70mm f/4L IS USM

Thanks a lot, Isabel! The glaciers seem to draw the clouds.

Iceland is addictive, nearly everyone who has visited wants to return:-)

Das Eis schmilzt? Ich denke Klimawandel gibt es nicht? Klasse Aufnahme mal wieder!

Gudrun has replied to LotharW
Besten Dank, Lothar! Lol, wenn das Gewicht vom Eis weg ist, gehen die Vulkane verstärkt hoch, das dämpft dann vielleicht für ein paar Jahre die Erwärmung;-)

love the view so far a world away from where I live . why I joined panoramio all those years ago and why I am on Ipernity to show like this a very different land to the rest of the world. Stunning shot.

Thank you so much, Steve! Yes, I also loved and still love to see places I have never travelled to and always appreciate when people show where their photos were taken.

What a marvellous desolate landscape and a lovely image. It's really concerning though, how glaciers are in full retreat everywhere it seems.

Gudrun has replied to tiabunna
Thanks very much, George! In Iceland melting glaciers will lead to an uptick in volcanism...

Muchas gracias, Mariano! Sadly we didn't get any nearer, there are a few 4x4 tracks but they are so bad that you need a Superjeep...

Que lástima :(

I have always found Icelandic skies amazing (but what is not amazing in Iceland?) because of the clouds, which seemed three dimensional to me! Another good image from our beloved Iceland!

Gudrun has replied to Adele
Thanks a lot, Adele! I found the sjies in the highlands especially overwhelming because the land is so vast and empty. Not a place to be though when the weather gets really bad....

Was eine Weite! – Und im Vordergrund ist das Eis bereits abgeschmolzen?
Viele Grüße!

Gudrun has replied to Ruesterstaude
Schönen Dank, Volker! Nein, dort war zumindest in jüngerer Zeit kein Eis. Vor dem Gletscher liegt noch eine Talsenke, die man hier nicht sieht, bis dahin gingen früher die Gletscherzungen, heute sind dort Seen und Feuchtgebiete.

Das Betrachten in großer Auflösung lohnt!

Gudrun has replied to Tacheles
Besten Dank, Norbert! Ich war hier zu faul, zum Tele zu wechseln, sonst hätte ich mehr Gletscherdetails bekommen (aber wahrscheinlich den Vordergrund verloren...)

Aber offenbar hat der Gletscher mal mindestens bis hierher gereicht. Ich wüsste nicht, wer sonst die Brocken bis dahin geschleift hat ;-)

Gudrun has replied to polytropos
Während der letzten Eiszeit war das natürlich alles komplett vergletschert. Aber seither war das Hochland zwischen den großen Gletschern eisfrei.

polytropos has replied to Gudrun
Das sieht man auch bei uns in der Schweiz im Mittelland. Da hat es zum Teil enorm grosse Gesteinsbrocken, die da eigentlich gar nicht hingehören :-)

Superb panorama Gudrun. Love the clouds and the shadows on the ground. The rocks make good foreground interest.

Thank you, Graham! The cloud shadows were a real bonus.

I love the shadows of the clouds on the barren landscape. It is worrying to read about the rapid retreat of the glacier, and all glaciers in fact. Humankind is causing so many problems which are now reaching a critical point.

Gudrun has replied to Amelia Heath
Thanks very much, Amelia! I suspect we have already reached the tipping point and am glad I'm not young...

The clouds are coming down to meet the desolate landscape! What a superb picture Gudrun. Must be seen large...it looks amazing.

Gudrun has replied to Rosalyn Hilborne
Thanks a lot, Rosa! Over the glaciers there were always more clouds, I'm sure there is a scientific explanation for this:-)
