+10...you know, I've always found it interesting that Iceland is far more green than the snowy white of Greenland. do you suppose somewhere back in yore time, a cartographer got a bit lazy in his translating?

Thanks, Tony, Francois, & Chris.

Chris,

Iceland turns green every summer. It is not English green or tropical green, it is Iceland green - the farms and mountains receive a lovely coat of green.

The story of how Iceland was named by Flóki is recounted here -

Wow Rajan, that is truly a fantastic sight. Very unearthly and surreal, even terrifying.

It just looks like something out of a sci-fi movie. Stunning.
