    Otherworldly Landscapes: Iceland

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     HOLadd1 says over the past two years he captured various photographs of Iceland's unique landscape, which he says at times can seem otherworldly. 'It's stark, unique and beautiful,' he says. 'Iceland is a place of severe contrast. You have glaciers sitting next to volcanic hot spots, and sometimes you might not even know it.' He says it is easy to envision yourself somewhere else in the universe while looking at Iceland's landscape. 'It's hard not to see the ground boiling up steam and not think you're on another planet,' he says.
    - Jareen, CNN iReport producer

    Assorted shots from recent trips to Iceland...places not only have the otherworldly look, but a practical side as well: the Apollo astronauts trained in Iceland for their moon landings as it was the closest landscape to what NASA thought existed on the moon.
