Green Mars by Dee-T Green Mars by Dee-T
Landmannalaugar
Iceland

The title of this image refers to the novels by Kim Stanley Robinson regarding the colonisation of Mars. I'd imagine that if it ever occurred, it may at some point, look like this. This area of Iceland can only be reached by 4X4 (Safely anyway) during the summer months. It is one of the most remarkable areas I have ever seen. Amid the raging winds on the day we were there, the passing clouds let through shafts of light which would illuminate the mountains and light up the greenery. Not a tree in sight in this geothermal wasteland.

Wow, those hills look slippery to me. Like they're covered in moss! Well done.

very delicate moss too - tramping in it apparently destroys it for years!
