Breiðamerkurjökull appears in the background. This outlet glacier of Vatnajökull has experienced a major retreat since the mid 20th Century, when it reached close to the Atlantic coast. A moraine in that area serves as the viewpoint for this photo. Glacier retreat led to rapid lake growth. The scenic beauty of this site does not only attract high numbers of visitors, but repeatedly also the movie industry.
