Cotton Field - Landmannalaugar, Iceland

This is an image from last July of cotton grass growing in shallow water.

 

Landmannalaugar is like an oasis on the life-little central highland of Iceland. Being at altitude of 500-600m it is remarkably vegetated. One if the most interesting vegetation feature are these cotton grass fields in one of the many wetlands around.
