Rúrí - August 2007

Reykjavik, Iceland

 

 

ENDANGERED WATERS

 

 

Waterfalls, rivers and lakes;

these are like living beings.

We can not exist without them.

Water is the most important

element on earth

for the existence of human kind

and all life.

Around the world, thousands,

no: millions of people are suffering

from draught and the lack

of clear and unpolluted water.

 

Still, waterfalls and fresh water

sources have been exploited

and destroyed on a massive scale

all over the globe.

And more are being sacrificed

every day.

 

The waterfalls in this window

are or were in Iceland.

The three large images are falls

in danger of being destroyed:

Dettifoss and Dynkur,

the small ones have been destroyed

or terminated within the last year:
