In 1973, a United States Navy DC plane crashed on the black beach of Sólheimasandur, on the South Coast of Iceland. Miraculously, everyone survived the crash, but there was no point in moving the wreckage. The skeleton plane, now corroded and graffitied, remains eerily outlined on the stark black sands of Sólheimasandur, against the backdrop of Icelandic glaciers.
It’s World Whale Day! Did you know that over 300,000 whales and dolphins are killed every single year just as a by-product of industrial fishing (@seashepherd)? Fortunately, commercial whaling was banned in 1986, however, illegal whaling, dying seas, pollution, oil/gas development, ship strikes, etc., all have had major impacts on the populations of these magnificent creatures. Not only is the ocean their home, it’s OUR life source, too.
Inform yourself, get involved, and make small changes in your life to protect our oceans. 💙🐋

“Black Dand Beach and Mountain” - I took this on my Honeymoon to Iceland. We had a blast exploring the area all day for a very long sunset...
"No matter how many times you drive the same road it’s always beautiful, but sometimes so much so that you could almost think you’re hallucinating and just have to pull over and stare (but really who needs hallucinations when you have nature just doing its thing)" By @isobelruth
