Distant lava columns sprout from the sea at Dyrholaey, Iceland
The small peninsula, or promontory, Dyrholaey (formerly known as Cape Portland by English seamen) is located on the south coast of Iceland, not far from the village Vik. It was formerly an island of volcanic origin, which is also known by the Icelandic word eyja, meaning island.
At the end of the peninsula the black lava columns of the Reynisdrangar come out of the sea.
In the summertime, many puffins nest on the cliff faces of Dyrholaey.
