Thingvellir-Þingvellir National Park-Iceland-2013
Iceland

A group panorama of some of the IVRPA Iceland 2013 attendees gathered around one of the many small and huge cracks in the ground. The North American and Eurasian Plates meet here in a rift valley called Thingvellir which is located in Þingvellir National Park. As you will notice, the fertile volcanic landscape here sprouts all kinds of rock moss and plant life. Þingvellir is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The overcast and cloudy weather gave us a blank sky with little to show except for Aryton's new Nodal Ninja's Fanotec 2-section carbon-fiber Traveler Pole. I think it's cheaper than stacking two Gitzo monopods and looks better too.

Also check out how the look and feel of this 360 panorama in a Stereographic or Little Planet projection by right-clicking in the browser window and choosing another view. Having fun yet? And check out some of the wacky camera gear on display here.

More About Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights. In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states. Text by Steve Smith.
