    A lone hiker on the top of the hill in the midst of the beautiful geothermal Hveradalir area (Kerlingarfjöll) - one of the places I love most in Iceland. I keep coming back and will keep going back to this place as many times as I can, seeing and photographing it from ground and air because nothing can beat the scenery, its raw beauty and the combination of space and light that make every moment unique at any season and any time of the day.

    Your Shot photographer Marc Henauer commented "Ice and fire offer spectacular landscapes and natural phenomena. The most incredible is that the man has taken advantage of this hostile nature to live there. By exploiting geothermal energy, Icelanders reduce the impact on their environment. A beautiful representation of man and nature!"
