Iceland is a land of fire and ice, unique in Europe due to its sparse human population and volcanic landscape, with 130 active volancanos, and many thermal pools and geysers, as well as the world's third largest icefield. Four Wild Wonders photographers travelled to Iceland to document different aspects of its natural heritage. Mark Carwardine (UK) photographed humpback whales off the north coast, local photographer Daniel Bergmann documented gyr falcons and a host of other breeding birds around Lake Myvatn, and Orsolya Haarberg (Hungary) trained her lens on the rugged landscapes, spectacular waterfalls and seabird colonies. Magnus Lundgren (Norway) produced dramatic underwater images from Silva in Thingvellir National Park of the tectonic boundary between the European and North American plates.
