Light in Iceland: Móskarðshnjúkar

Esja’s teats.

Móskarðshnjúkar are the rhyolite peaks at the easternmost point of Esja, the volcanic range across the bay from Reykjavík. The photographs below were accumulated over a period of time, and reveal the varied flavours of the low sub-Arctic light during the winter.

In the summer months, shorn of snow, the reddish-yellow rhyolite rock presents an illusion of incident sunshine – see the final image.

In the first two images, a group of hikers making their way up can be seen near the saddle.
