Dyrhólaey Lighthouse, Iceland

The setting sun gently illuminates the whitewashed walls of the Dyrhólaey Lighthouse in Iceland while the ocean fades into shadow in the background.


The story

"Perched atop a nearly 400-foot high headland that juts into the ocean at the Southernmost point of Iceland’s mainland, the Dyrhólaey Lighthouse stands as a sentinel in the gentle light of the setting sun. 

My wife and I were touring the southern coast of Iceland, stopping at waterfalls, exploring black beaches, and admiring gorgeous rock formations. We timed the day to catch the sunset from the Dyrhólaey Peninsula, and the results were spectacular! As the sun set, it gently illuminated the whitewashed walls of the lighthouse, while the ocean faded into shadow in the background."
