The cinder cone - Búrfell

The cinder cone - Búrfell
Uploaded this one for dini :o)

Went hiking on Sunday morning in a place called Búrfellsgjá. It's a walk along a wide lava channel that was made by a lava flow from the cinder cone Búrfell. This place is a geologists dream ;o)

This is a panorama made of four photos taken from one rim of the cinder cone Búrfell.
I recommend looking at the original for full impact :o)

UPDATE: Thanks to Hafdís for providing me with the right names of things, i.e. Búfell is a cinder cone and Búrfellsgjá is a lava channel. The lava is 8000 years old!
