Photographer's Note

Lake Thingvellir is arguably Iceland's biggest lake (some say that the artificial Thorisvatn lake, mostly created by a hydroelectric dam). Lake Thingvellir is located in the national park of Thingvellir, a beautiful area with strange lava formations, Icelandic vegetation, a waterfall called Oxararfoss and on top of that, Thingvellir was the location of the ancient Althing, the world's first congress, which was held yearly by vikings.
