This monument is located in Fáskrúðsfjörður, one of many beautiful fjords on the east coast of Iceland. The image is of “Crosses”, a monument erected in memory of 49 French and Belgian sailors who perished on the sea in the east in the nineteenth century. In the background, we see one of my favorite mountains, Sandfell, a 743-meter high Rhyolite rock. It is a classic “rock star” that is believed to be 600 meters thick and one of the best examples of the Tertiary period found in the northern hemisphere.
