Kaldidalur, The Cold Valley, is the shortest of the three main routes across Iceland’s central highlands. Its highest point is 727 m above sea level and offers magnificent views on the two glaciers, Langjökull and Þórisjökull, and their surroundings. The panorama was taken at 3:22 AM GMT when the sun finally rose above the low-floating clouds. Þórisjökull can be seen as what appears like a long, snow-topped mountain ridge. It is actually an ancient, sub-glacial shield volcano, topped by a glacier. There’s an aerial photograph, © Jóhann Ísberg, available that shows Þórisjökull in the foreground to the left and its much larger sibling Langjökull to the right, stretching into the distance.
