Picture of Vestrahorn, Iceland, at sunset

Planet Iceland

Photograph by Sophie Carr

This [was] taken at the volcanic beach at Stokksnes in southeastern Iceland in February 2015, writes photographer Sophie Carr. I used a two-second exposure to capture the water trails as the waves receded over rocks at the edge of the beach, just as the sun was setting behind me, illuminating the mighty Vestrahorn mountain and some peaks in the far distance.
