Photographer's Note

The Reykjanes peninsula - not far from Reykjavik-is by its splendid scenery and solitude. It is still not much visited by tourists, yet it is worth the "detour". A photo of Lake Kleifarvatn -

Wikipedia will tell you this:
Kleifarvatn lake, surrounded by black volcanic sand beaches in the Reykjanes peninsula, Iceland
It is located in the southern part of the peninsula on the back area of the cracks of the Atlantic and is accessible by a track. Its greatest depth is 97 meters.
After a major earthquake in 2000, the lake began to disappear into the ground. Its size has decreased since about 20%. Faults are partially obstructed from the lake regained its level before the earthquake.
Near the lake, Krýsuvík, there are two places to high temperature (Seltún and a second on the other side of the lake).
Kleifarvatn is also the title of a novel by Icelandic writer Arnaldur Indriðason. The title of the French translation of the lake is man.
