Lóndrangar, Snæfellsnes, Iceland

The Lóndrangar are a pair of rock pinnacles in Iceland. They are volcanic plugs of basalt, that have been hewn out from softer surrounding rock by erosion. At 75 and 61 m tall, they are a singular sight, rising above and outside the ocean front due east across from Malarrif and some 10 km from Hellnar, on the southern coast of Snæfellsnes peninsula.  The Lóndrangar are remnants from a bigger crater which has mostly eroded away.   (Wiki)

There are many bird nests in the steep slopes of the twin towers and birds which can be observed are black-legged kittiwake, common murre, puffin and northern fulmar.  Little dots you see in the pics are those mentioned birds.

The cliffs are high and steep and when looking down the only thing you see are wild waves smashing on the rocks down there along with the squawking birds. This place is one of those places that makes you feel a bit small against the power of nature, also because of the nearness of the Snæfellsjökull glacier.
