Dyrfjöll

As soon as I got into Goa the other day, my little niece Saraswati showed me something that at once brought to my mind the magnificent sight of Dyrfjöll (“Door Mountain”) in east Iceland. This striking formation is encountered en route to Borgarfjörður Eystri, and looks like a wall with a slot punched through it. On this morning, the thick, low hanging cloud cover lent the scene an air of foreboding and mystery.

The sight of the dearly departed tooth of my little niece Saraswati is what took me back to Dyrfjöll.

    The mountain does look very interesting. The effect of the first photo is dramatic. And so is the close up shot of your niece’s teeth :) :)ReplyCancel
