11 Rauðfeldsgjá Mountain Fissure on Snæfellsnes Peninsula, Iceland

These people are walking across a lava field towards the base of Mount Botnsfjall. The round, shaded area in the middle is the Rauðfeldsgjá fissure. This narrow crack is a portal to a hidden gorge with a stream and high, moss-covered walls leading up to a natural skylight. The ravine is named after two brothers who were killed here 1,200 years ago by Bárður Snæfellsás, a half-man half-troll.
