A riverbed in Iceland
November 26, 2011

Riverbed, Iceland

This Month in Photo of the Day: Nature and Weather Photos

A riverbed in Iceland, with a four-by-four on the road to give an idea of the scale. And we can imagine the strength of the river flow at spring. With the composition, in this case, there is no preference for sky or landscape: Both are interesting and nonuniform. Breaking the rules is a common rule.
