Ódáðahraun, August 2019
In the last years I spent well over 100 days hiking in the lava field of evil deeds. But painful feet of eternal hikes over sharp-edged lava are quickly forgotten in such moments as this distant view to the queen of all mountains. More than 50 km away from my position at the western edge of the Ódáðahraun she towers over the hostile lava shield of Kollóttadyngja.

A combination of work and amenities on a very green island in the Atlantic Ocean. With some different photos than usually shown here...
A dedicated gallery about my trekking journey's into the barren and otherworldly lava fields of the Ódáðahraun:
A few days in the oldest national park of Denmark.
The gallery is online.
Finally some fresh images taken during the lunar eclipse from the highest mountain of Northern Germany.
More images in the HARZ gallery.
