Unspoiled Natural Beauty

Vestrahorn is a 454 meter high mountain overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and part of the headland of Stokksnes. The shore features stunning lava dunes, that are constantly being shaped by the natural forces of the water and wind.

This site is very popular among photographers, because the scene changes constantly. The black sand, sun, fog, tall grasses, black dunes, waves, high and low tide create a truly dramatic view.

The wet sand mirrors a reflection of the mountain above, providing an enigmatic site.


Several vertical images were taken to create this panorama, then merged within Lightroom CC.
