Iceland From Above – Land in Creation
This book displays the landscapes of Iceland in one of the most breathtaking and meaningful ways, from the air. As the book emerges, the Bárðarbunga eruption is underway with vigorous activity in the Holuhraun area, enabling stunning aerial pictures to be included to show us the living earth at work. The aerial perspective allows us to see clearly the extent and grandeur of volcanic features, as well as glaciers and rivers and the spectacular landscapes they have eroded. The reader thus experiences a deeper understanding of Iceland’s dynamic nature. Everything is intensified and relationships clarified. Catastrophic volcanic events and associated floods of recent years such as in the volcanoes of Vatnajökull and Eyjafjallajökull are depicted with breathataking photography.
The author, Björn Rúriksson, is well qualified for this work. Not only is he a writer, photographer and naturalist of distinction, but an experienced pilot who knows his country and its natural history intimately, both from the air and on the ground. In this, his latest book, he has produced a work which is both highly informative and beatiful.
ICELAND – Two continents meet in Iceland, lying as it does on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge between the North-American and Eurasian tectonic plates. Iceland is known as the lan of ice and fire, as both active volcanos and enormous glaciers can be found there. Icelandic nature contains many such contrasting features – lush valleys and expansive deserts, narrow fjords and vast plains, high waterfalls and big lakes.
