Iceland - October 10th, 2011

This image shows the southern shoreline of Iceland, a European island country in the north Atlantic Ocean on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. Iceland is volcanically and geologically active. The interior mainly consists of a plateau characterised by sand fields, mountains and glaciers, while many glacial rivers flow to the sea through the lowlands.

The capital and the largest city is Reykjavík, with the surrounding areas in the southwestern region of the country being home to two-thirds of the country’s population. Reykjavík can be observed on the southern shores of Faxaflói Bay, a bay in Southwest-Iceland between the peninsulas of Snæfellsnes and Reykjanes. The capital of the island, Reykjavík, is situated on its southern shore.
