Just back from holiday and this is my first shot from my summer Iceland trip. I'm really not too sure how people will take it! It's a lot more fine-art than a lot of my stuff, yet also very similar to how it was in camera. This is a mossy rock underneath some waterfalls at Hraunfoss. This place is basically a crack in the ground and water seeps out beneath a lava field, but above some harder rock (I think).


My friend Carol thinks the moss looks like a bear eating a melon, hence the name. Nelson thinks it looks like a turtle. Let me know what it looks like to you!
