…or, for those not fluent in Icelandic, Thingvellir. It was where the Viking clans convened annually for almost a thousand years in order to govern their island. About an hour’s drive from Reykjavik, it’s a seismically active rift valley crisscrossed with gorges and waterfalls, one of which is pictured here.

Wow, what a shot! The clouds, the colors, the waterfall over a cliff. It almost looks like one of those mythological places you read about in a Tolkien novel. This also would look fantastic enlarged and framed on a wall.
Like reading my mind, you are. This is one I have framed at home, and it does feature in mythology: the Icelandic Sagas, to be specific!
