Gardar Basalt Columns at Reynisfjara (Iceland)

Here are a few images from the Reynisfjara, the most well-known and loved black sand beach on the south coast of Iceland near the town of Vík (Vík í Mýrdal).

The basalt pillars you see here are at what I consider the entrance to the rest of the beach, on the side of a cliff called Gardar.

The photographs are credited to Bark River Photography.

Here is the link to a webpage with some more information about the beach, including safety tips for the notoriously treacherous waves and ocean currents:
