14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Cascading brook in Thingvellir National Park, Iceland

Like many natural spots in Iceland, I love the depth, layers, and contrasting colors and textures of the view. In this case, there is some gently flowing water close by, some slightly rougher water behind it gliding over some rocks, and behind that the water is rushing over large boulders with the mountains and sky in the far background. There is bluish water, green grass, white snow and clouds, blue sky, and grayish brown roughly textured rocks.
