Iceland Ring Road: a black beach

We have visited black beaches in the past, mostly in warmer climes e.g. Corsica and the Aeolian Islands. However, none have been as extensive as the one at Hvalnesviti.

It was surrounded by misty mountains on the day we visited.

There was some colour to break up the monochrome; the lighthouse

some shells and seaweed on the beach

and James’s coat.

The road to Höfn goes through a short tunnel. We also passed an almost but not quite black derelict building which has been decorated by various artists. One of the works is said to be by Banksy but I did not get a particularly good shot of that in the very low light.
