Dimmuborgir is a large area of unusually shaped lava fields east of Mývatn in Iceland. In Icelandic folklore, Dimmuborgir is said to connect earth with the infernal regions. In Nordic Christian lore, it is also said that Dimmuborgir is the place where Satan landed when he was cast from the heavens and created the apparent “Helvetes katakomber” which is Norwegian for “The Catacombs of Hell”.The Norwegian symphonic black metal band called Dimmu Borgir is named after this Dimmuborgir region. It was hard to find the proper location of it. After driving in this area finally I reached it. For sure it was very quiet place and I have only sometimes passed tourists while walking between the lava rocks and caves in Dimmuborgir. I used the Tokina 11-20 mm f/2.8 wide angle lens to stop more beauty of this location. Thanks to “Tokina Polska” and “NEXT77” who supplied me with this gear. This photograph is my memory of this place. For higher resolution and more Color Digital photographs visit the gallery
