Iceland Hjörleifshöfði Cave

  • Please log in or sign up for free to see the GPS coordinates & weather for this photo spot
The cave is located in Hjörleifshöfði mountain, and is often called the Yoda Cave. The cave wasn’t well known until the Hollywood movie Star Wars Rougue one was filmed there. ( )

Photography Tips

The enormous light contrasts (cave versus view to the outside) results in a high-contrast view when the exposure is set correctly. So rather underexpose.
Rather in the morning until midday, as there is no direct back light.
