Mt. Lomagnupur   Iceland

Mt Lomagnupur is a prominent 688 m high and precipitous promontory on the south coast. It is the southernmost end of Mt Bjorninn just west of River Nupsvotn of the Skeidararsandur alluvial plain. A few obvious remains of great landslides dot the landscape, one from 1790 near the ring road close to the mountain, and another more recent (1998) in the eastern slopes. Like other promontories of the south coast, Mt Lomagnupur was a headland during the Ice Age. Photo © copyright by Ed Fuhr.
