    A lone hiker on the top of the hill in the midst of the amazing out of this world geothermal Hveradalir area (Kerlingarfjöll). Iceland has a special place in my heart, and I love photographing its nature both from the ground and air because nothing can beat the scenery, its raw beauty and the combination of space and light that makes every moment unique at any season and any time of the day. This shot is special to me as it was not planned anyhow, it just happened, right place and right time.

    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!"
