|Right on this grassy hill stood the first 'parliament' of Iceland more than 1000 years ago. Icelandic viking tribes marched to this place every year to make laws. In the background you can see the 'Rock of Law', formed by the cracking of European and American plates. This meant that the lawspeaker must have stated the law in front of this rock, otherwise it wasn't actually a law.|
Today, it's a National Park, you can read about it in my note posted yesterday.

Nice composition, colors and detail.
Best Regards from Portugal,
very good note on this impressiv rock formation. I just imagine how our politicians would look like in their silky suits, standing on the grassy hill in front of this wall instead sitting on their leather chair in parliament in order to make a law like:
'Grass must be medium green and cut to exactly 7,25 mm in front of walls like this'
