Lava formation - hiking near Botnsdalur.

This image feels so very Icelandic to me: moss covered lava in swooping, gnarled formations that could serve as sacred places for the Huldufólk (hidden people), the elves that over half of the population believe in.  A very private people, the huldufólk have been known to occasionally help Icelanders in peril.  Disrupt them or their natural homes, however, and they can really wreak havoc.
