Photographer's Note

Žingvellir is the National Park where the Althing, an open-air assembly representing the whole of Iceland, was established in 930 and continued to meet until 1798. The Althing has deep historical and symbolic associations for the people of Iceland. The property includes the Žingvellir National Park located between two tectonic plates and the remains of the Althing itself. It was the first national park in Iceland.
