The terminus of the Bláfeldarhraun lava flow is seen in the middle ground to the left of the farm houses.  The flow originated from the pyroclastic cone on the left-center horizon and descended in the large lava cascade visible in the center of this view from the south.  The flow is one of several Holocene lava flows of the Helgrindur (Lysuhóll) volcanic system on the Snaefellsnes Peninsula. Photo by Lee Siebert, 2008 (Smithsonian Institution).
