Iceland

Leaving a mark in the sand

There are many ways the wind leaves marks on plants and landscapes. For example, trees bent with the wind, and so do bushes. The more constant and severe the wind is, the more you see it in the floral shape. When the wind comes with rain, you will also notice the pattern of those needing the water growing on the exposed side. And then there are the forms of erosion, deflation, sedimentation, and ripples which let us determine wind directions and speeds. This photo shows a different mark, by a grass scratching in the volcanic sand in Southern Iceland. I also wrote a small travel entry, you may read by clicking here. By this, I resumed the travel section of this website, after a long break. This is where the trips will be found, which fall outside the normal annual migration pattern. It will be less than in the past. But there will be some to follow.
