Incredible United States and European Tectonic Plates in Iceland pulling apart Leaving dramatic 200ft water-filled Crevices those Divers can explore Tauheed Ahmad September 8, 2016 Travel 693 Visitors look like toys in these aerial photographs which reveal an impressive split landscape where two lands meet. The “dramatic terrain” the join between two tectonic plates is widespread with travelers who are curious to explore the natural wonder on land and underwater. Thus, the splits in the land, which has several faults, volcanoes, valleys, and hot springs, are caused by the Eurasian and North American plates in Iceland pulling apart. Therefore, some of the rifts are filled with majestic clear cold water where divers can every so often be seen exploring the underwater crevices, which can be up to 200ft deep. The crystal clean water is colored by the sand, silt and other minerals at the bottom and the deeper rifts can be visibly seen from above. If you want to take the colorful photographs “Jassen Todorov” a 40 years old photographer, flew in a Cessna 170 plane around 600m high. He’s professor in San Francisco State University, in California, USA, explains there were more than 300 people visiting Thingvellir National Park, in Iceland. The beautiful divide splits Iceland in two and it is very impressive to see from above. This is really a natural wonder to see once a life. Source: Dailymail Originally posted 2015-08-30 10:42:29.
