Panoramic afternoon view from a promontory of Kristínartindar in southeastern direction. Skaftafellsjökull, dominating the photo, is an outlet glacier of the ice cap Vatnajökull. The stratovolcano Öræfajökull appears in the background. Its summit Hvannadalshnúkur (2110 m, centre) represents the highest peak of Iceland.
