Kverkfjöll volcano (upper right) is seen here from Snæfell mountain, located to the ENE across the Bruarjökull glacier, an outflow sheet of the vast Vatnajökull icecap.  A fissure system extends 60 km to the NE of Kverkfjöll, which is the northernmost of a half dozen volcanoes located on the Vatnajökull icecap.
