View from Svínafellsheiði to the largest of all southern outlet glaciers of Vatnajökull, the main ice cap of Iceland. The tongue of Skeiðarárjökull is up to more than 15 km wide. The black layers exposed at the glacier surface are the result of ash falls related to eruptions of nearby volcanoes, located beneath the ice cap.
