My photographs of Iceland's landscape/ environment - it is known to be a tectonic environment as well as a glacial one

When first discussing "environmental" we considered as many options as possible. This included geographical environments. I remembered some of photos from Iceland when I'd taken a trip there 2 years ago. Most of the place is completely natural, and it is known for being both a tectonic and glacial environment. I found it interesting that these two oxymoronic environments are so close - even intermingled with each other. This was the first time I considered the idea of juxtaposing an environment with an object which do not normally mix.

Also, the texture of the ground is strangely similar visually to chopped meat. Looking at this made me begin to consider the body as an environment.
