Iceland Pictures

    Iceland, where water are abundant in all forms (steam, stream, and ice), where the land is actively volcanic in all colors, the sky and ocean so amazingly blue (when visible), and people are so few. Iceland, located right on top of the geological rift between North America and Europe, is nature's true Song of Ice and Fire.
