Photographer's Note

Finally afternoon we were shown Mr 2109.6 m, the highest peak in Iceland.

Is a peak in the north-western rim of the Öræfajökull volcano in Iceland and the highest point of the island. An official measurement completed in August 2005 established its height as 2,109.6 metres (6,921 ft) (previously set as 2,119 m (6,952 ft)).

The peak is part of the Skaftafell National Park. The route to the top is a popular climb though numerous and frequently hidden crevasses call for experienced mountain guides.
