The marvellous colours of Kerið, a volcanic crater, in winter. Iceland.
Kerið is a volcanic crater located in the Grímsnes area in south-west Iceland, on the popular route known as the Golden Circle.
It has a visually recognizable caldera still intact. The caldera, like the other volcanic rock in the area, is composed of a red volcanic rock. The caldera itself is approximately 55 m deep, 170 m wide, and 270 m across. Kerið is approximately 3,000 years old.
