19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Glacial wasteland - Iceland

The first thing I did when I landed in Iceland was rent a car to drive north towards the Langjökull glacier and get as close as I could. The closer I got to the glacier, the more barren the landscapes became and ultimately, I got this shot of the vast, stark mountains and rock covered ground.
