Iceland by NASA Visible Earth Web

Iceland is a mountainous country and the people are shaped by the harsh natural elements. It is situated in the middle of the North-Atlantic Ocean. This picture from the NASA Visible Earth Web shows a photo taken from space. The picture is taken in the early spring and shows how snow is covering most of the country and blends in with the icecaps and glaciers.
