This is lake Kleifarvatn in a barren and remote area, but despite that it is not very far from Reykjavík.
After a big earthquake in 2000, about 20% of the lake has disappeared!!

(Btw. this is a scanned picture from a slide, taken in 1987).

Amazing.
Links to some interesting sites Karl !
I found this interesting "summer houses are now over a kilometere from the shore when before they were metres away"
Nature takes its own course :-))
