We are given a new and different view of Iceland in the pages of this book. As indicated by the title of the book Iceland is examined from above. Viewers who may know many or most of the localities are given the opportunity to see them from a new viewpoint and in a new light. All the images in the book are taken from the air and this is the first book to treat the landscapes of Iceland so extensively in this way.
The book is intended to show the variations of color in nature while also attempting to give an insight to the geological history of the country's formation as experienced by the author. Iceland is a brand new country geologically speaking and infantile when compared to the age of its neighboring countries. In spite of this Iceland is an ancient land whether its age is compared with man's lifespan or with its eleven hundred year history. If the age of the country after it appeared above sea level is likened to one day, then its entire history happens within six seconds. If its age is likened to a whole year, then it has only been half an hour since the settlement.
