Thjorsa

Flowing out through the narrow gorges of Iceland's highlands, the Þjórsá (Thjorsa) is Iceland's longest river. The milky and vibrant texture captured by Chris comes from the Hofsjökull glacier as it mixes with colorful sediment along the way.

Hólmsá

Drawing its source from the Mýr­dalsjökull glacier, the Hólmsá river is an infusion of glacial runoff and sediment from the Katla volcano's eruptions. The diagonal composition of matte black on this board accentuates the free-flowing lines and texture.
