The mountain on the picture is Eyjafjöll all under snow as is common, now in the Icelandic month of Góa. It is the second last month of winter according to the calendar. The first day of Góa is Konudagur ("Woman's Day") and is commonly celebrated. The glacier on top of Eyjafjöll is Eyjafjallajökull which became known in 2010 for being difficult to pronounce and stopping air traffic.
