After sailing J÷kulsarlˇn, I drove along road N1, again, westound and I saw, some 100 kms. later, another beautiful fall, although compared to the others, it was "ugly" (main pic). The town is called KirkjubŠjarklaustur, and the name of the fall, Foss ß SÝ­u. But I'd like to attract your attention. Look carefully at the pic, it was very green, right?

Look at the second pic, it was taken from the road, just four minute later, impressive the contrast, don't you thing so?

Then, after some 70 kms., I arrived in VÝk (third pic), where I saw these three rocks (fourth pic) called Reynisdrangur and the black sandy beach (last pic). The highest rpck is 66 m. above the ocean level, and all three have their own name: Skessudrangar, Landdrangar and Langhamrar.
