Green volcanic cone.

Mælifell is the crown jewel of Mælifellssandur, the black volcanic desert adjoining the northern fringe of the Mýrdalsjökull glacier. Given the right conditions, this landscape in the southcentral Highlands of Iceland looks and feels unearthly.

The following photo essay features compositions framed on the ground, from a Cessna aircraft, and by a drone. A short video clip is also attached.

Mælifell is pronounced My-li-fetl.
