The massive basalt columns tower over the splendid Reynisfjara black sand beach next to Hálsanefshellir Cave near the southern town of Vík. While the wandering tourist cloaked in red made for a fine image, we would strongly recommend against approaching the edge of the ocean as she did. The sheer power of the roar of the crashing surf draws forth an evolutionary impulse fear in the pit of your stomach. That fear is justified as rogue waves can drag the unwitting out to sea in an instant. Signs and caution tape warn, but are continually crossed. This image was shot on auto at 1/350th of a second on 50 iso. <br />
