Everyone who has travelled on road no.1 between Höfn and Djúpivogur in the east Iceland know the road at Hvalnes- and Þvottárskriður. These places are a huge mountain landslide with cliffs above and below the road. Many days when the weather is bad, with heavy rain or strong wind it can be dangerous to pass the road trough this landslide. Some days the road is closed.
This road at Hvalnes and Þvottárskriður was built 1981, but before, the road lied through difficult valley, high in the mountain named Lónsheiði.
Until 1981 it was unusual to pass this landslide, even the beautiful coast below.
The north Atlantic ocean surf is heavy on the miscellaneous beach which has beautiful gravel beaches and huge cliffs and rocks.
Just below Þrottárskriður landslide is Stapavík, a beautiful gravel beach with high rock in the middle, like a huge stoned giant or troll. Along the beach are low cliffs where fresh water seeps out between the geologic age and wets the rocks.
The following recording was made near one of this place where the fresh water is dripping of the rock down to the gravel below.
Quality headphones are recommended while listening at medium level.

Lindin í Stapavík

Fyrir neðan Þvottárskriður, austur af Hvalnesskriðum, er nokkuð löng malarfjara sem heitir Stapavík. Þessi vík eða fjara skartar gríðarstórum stapa sem minnir á steinrunnið tröll. Stapavík er meira og minna umgirt tiltölulega lágum klettum og skriðum. Þar má víða sjá ferskt vatn streyma undan jarðlögunum og niður klettana.
Upptakan hér fyrir neðan var tekin upp á einum slíkum stað í júní 2014 þar sem vatnið seitlar niður klettavegginn og niður í fjörumölina. Í bakgrunni, bak við malarkamb, má heyra í þungri úthafsöldunni þegar hún skellur á fjörunni í gríð og erg, eins og hún hefur gert á þessum stað í árþúsundir.
Mælt er með því að hlusta á þessa upptöku í góðum heyrnartólum og á miðlungs hljóðstyrk.
