Shoot with care
The sea here can be very fierce so take extreme care if shooting close to the waters edge. Also be conscious of the tide and if walking round the headland make sure you don't get cut off.

About this spot
Reynisfarna beach is a black sand beach close to the town of Vik. From the headland three sea stacks jut out into the sea, which is fierce and wild here. Care should be taken not to get too close to the waters edge - the sea is so fierce here it has been known for many a photographer to lose their tripod and camera to the waves.
