Caption

Wave patterns on a black beach near Dyrholaey in southern Iceland. A flock of fulmars is visible near the bottom, just to the right of the breakers. The colour of the sand betrays its volcanic origin. The intense volcanic activity in this region is a consequence of the island's location on the boundary between the European and North American tectonic plates.
