Just a few miles below the Arctic Circle itself, the closest one will see there to a "dark day" stormy convective regime follows a convergence boundary across Iceland's deeply incised northern coast. Somber, textured, slate-colored skies, and the ominous shadows they cast upon landscapes, have captivated me since earliest childhood, and this was hard to leave behind. It's an uncommon juxtaposition of convective cloud base more suited to low latitudes, a rugged butte reminiscent of Southwest deserts, and the cold ocean. As with so much of the Icelandic outdoor experience, it rendered a unique moment still-framed and indelible in time and memory.
