14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
The sights of Silfra.

My sister and I were snorkeling in Silfra, the rift formed by the divergent North American and Eurasian tectonic plates. Although the crystal clear water was a cold 4°C, we still thoroughly enjoyed it due to the views. It is filled with some of the clearest and purest water in the world.
