    Edit Photo Details Hvitarvatn Iceland  
    An aerial of the delta of River Fulakvisl and Lake Hvitarvatn in the icelandic highlands. The river contains silt from glacier Langjökull and forms a magnificent delta. The conditions were very windy and I had to abort the flight shortly after taking this picture. This due to motion sickness. I used a Hassleblad digital medium format camera for the shot. The altitude was about 400m above the lake.

    Stunning aerial of a delta in Iceland. I have seen this fractal of nature photographed well in color, but it also works well in b&w.
