  Skaftafell National Park, Iceland
by coceng

Skaftafell area used to be known as 'Oraefi', meaning Wasteland; It was during the Oraefi eruptions in about 1362.
It took hundred of years when the vegetations came back, hence being preserved as we can see the area now...
Now, my photo...I came to the southern summit of Skaftafellsheidi.
More mountains looming further away, but closely looking at the black spot in the middle of my photo, that's the area of Svartifoss Waterfall !
