Alex Mustard dives between tectonic plates

How's this for an awe inspiring image?
yep, renowned underwater photographer Alex Mustard has captured the amazing beauty beneath the surface of the crystal clear waters in Iceland.

But perhaps more amazing than the spectacular image is that this actually shows the split between the American and Eurasian tectonic plates, a growing gap that is slowly inching apart each year.

On his website, the photographer said he was "heading to Iceland for a 12 day diving trip, mainly around the remote north coast"for an itinerary that was "very exciting".

"And even if only half our plans work out I should come back with some very exciting images," he wrote.

Well that is an understatement. Check out his Facebook page for some more fantastic images.
