Iceland photos: Blue Hole

All photos: Roberto Iván Cano/500px

Spanish photographer Roberto Iván Cano traveled to Iceland to document the country's breathtaking natural landscapes, and this stunning collection of images is the result. Iceland's primordial-like terrain includes geothermal springs, cascading waterfalls and deep canyons.

In the photo above, volcanic vents called fumaroles bubble and steam as the sun sits low in the sky over Hveravellir, a nature reserve located in central Iceland.
