Wordless Wednesday - Tectonic Plates, Iceland.


This photo may look very ordinary and boring but it is in Dimmuborgir National Park and is of the American and Eurasian tectonic plates pulling apart. Iceland, as far as I know is the only place in the world where they can be seen above ground and it goes right across the country. Everywhere else they are on the sea bed.

Formations caused by volcanic eruptions.


I am joining Sandee at Comedy Plus for the blog hop.

Those separating plates are scary to see. I think we prefer to have them out of sight. Out of sight, out of mind, right?

Sandee said...

I had no idea. Wow.

Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.

Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday. ♥

The idea of seeing such a joint between planet plates is very interesting and fascinating.
I shall 'dig' a little bit more. Thank you for this idea! I wonder how deep goes the gap inside.
Happy WW!

Wow, that is amazing. Almost all my coworkers have gone to Iceland, I need to make it there one day too - from all I hear, it is a beautiful place.

How fascinating! The thought of those plates separating is a little unnerving!

Happy Thursday, Jackie!

Wow! It really is a rare image. I will definitely never get there, so thank you for the unexpected opportunity to see the meeting (or parting ?!) of two tectonic plates.

Have a fine day!

It is something which we don't get to see here. Amazing mother nature at work and it sounds scary too.
