I found a picture of Húsavíkurfjall in Iceland which I took but didn't pay too much attention back then to it because there were so many awesome things in Iceland to post. But I really like the calm feel of the clouds at the top of the mountain. It's a clean graphic picture which I wouldn't mind printing and putting somewhere on the wall.
