Kirkjufell - Unique and photogenic Myndarlega fjallið

Snæfellsnes

Kirkjufell at Grundarfjörður (Route 54) is one of Iceland´s most photogenic mountains. It´s shape is unique and photos of it can be found in various newspapers, magazines and all over the internet. One viewpoint in particular has been popular over the last year, with the Kirkjufellsfoss in front and Kirkjufell in the back. The oldest photo, taken from that point of view, which can be found on the web was taken by Guðmundur Ó. Sigmarsson from Hellissandur on July 9th 2006, and some might say this particular photo was the harbinger of these photos. Thousands of people have travelled a long way to take a photo of Kirkjufell from the exact same viewpoint. Kirkjufell við Grundarfjörð er líklega myndarlegasta fjall landsins. Ekki þarf að leita lengi á samfélagsmiðlum til að finna myndir sem ferðamenn, innlendir sem erlendir, hafa tekið af þessu formfagra fjalli. Talið er að ljósmynd sem Guðmundur Ó. Sigmarsson frá Hellissandi tók af fjallinu 9. júlí 2006 hafi hrundið skriðunni af stað, en það er elsta myndin sem finnst á samfélagsmiðlum tekin með

Kirkjufellssfossinn í forgrunni og fjallið í bakgrunni. Sú mynd fór víða og síðan hafa fjölmargir ferðamenn lagt leið sína að fjallinu til að taka mynd frá sama sjónarhorni. Slíkar eru vinsældir sjónarhornsins að fólk hefur komið frá fjarlægum löndum til að taka þannig mynd af Kirkjufelli.
