Tjörnin, Iceland

Tjörnin, which means the pond in Icelandic, is a small lake in the centre of Reykjavík. It has a variety of waterfowl that reside on it, and during the winter geothermal water is pumped in to maintain an area that isn’t frozen over for the water birds. These photographs were taken in November 2010.
