Cry of the black birds is a song of one of my favourite bands around, Amon Amarth. The titel fits just perfect.

After a visit at the Eyjafjallajoekull we checked the map to pick a spot you can tell people from. For us it was the part of Iceland that is the most in the south. After enjoying the almighty ocean at the coast, we climbed up a huge cliff with about 100m height. It was around 12pm when the sunset finally set in which was quite tricky to capture because of wall of fog creeping it's way up the land. Nonetheless I gave it a try and a seagull wanted to join in as well which just gave the picture the last touch.

I hope you enjoy it and can feel what I feel when remembering the situation.
