    I am sharing some photos I took on my recent trip to Iceland. Iceland is a moss paradise, with moss covering mountain, rock and beaches everywhere. There are no tree forest there, only moss stone forest.

    Iceland has many volcanoes that erupt about once a decade. So the island is covered with larva beds everywhere. The larva beds are different from the ones I saw in Hawaii which are mostly deserted pitch black rock. In Iceland southern coast, which is rainy all year long, the black formations are often covered with green moss making them look like moss balls, except that they are boulder size.

    The green moss forest on black stone and black sand made me wonder if I were looking at nature imitating Nature Aquarium, or vice versa.

    A few more pics including glacier on black sand beach, interesting contrast and made me feel like walking on Onyx Sand substrate.
