Keilir

Keilir
Every town in Iceland has its own special mountain it likes to call its own... and thinks of course is the most magnificent mountain in the land ;o)

My hometown, Hafnarfjörður, has Keilir (which really means "cone" ... easily explained by its shape) :o)

This morning I hiked to the top of Keilir... too bad there is no road leading to it where it stands in a lava field... so one has to start (and end) with a 3 1/2 km. walk from and to the car.


The weather was beautiful and the walk was... invigorating :o)

I recommend the original size on this one: u1.ipernity.com/11/13/72/4581372.42269750.jpg

Mér dettur svo oft tunglið í hug þegar að ég sé svona myndir, en alveg sérlega falleg og himininn alveg æði. þú ert dugnaðarforkur stelpa :-) Sróra myndin er æði

Pixie has replied to Ester
Já, þetta minnir svolítið á tunglið ;o) Takk takk Ester, maður verður að fara að hreyfa sig eitthvað, það tilheyrir sumrinu :o)

Very good, Begga!
Every town has its mountain but... it also seems that every mountain has its own sky, cause this sky and these clouds seems to fit perfectly with the mountain!

I love the effect! Brava :-)
