Iceland s resilient beauty- arches on the Snaefellsnes Peninsula

Winter surf pours through arches it has carved in the basalt at Arnarstapi, on the Snæfellsnes Peninsula. In a few months the place will be a carnival of kittiwakes, seabirds that breed here. The large arch is roughly 40 feet high.  Image ©Orsolya and Erlend Haarberg/National Geographic
