The Skeiðarársandur is a desert plan in southern Iceland that is crossed by the glacial river Skeiðará coming from the Skeiðarárjökull glacier just south of Skaftafell National Park in Iceland. This is one of the most tormented regions in Iceland. The area forms an alluvial plain with water branching in intricate patterns as it heads to the ocean. From the air it is a brilliant sight. Nearly monochromatic, with the shimmer of the water cutting contrasting lines in the black desert terrain. Also see my friend Dennys Bisogno's Iceland Alluvial Plans images.
