Icelandic Lake Take-Off

Thingvallavatn serves as a runway.

The Swedish National Heritage Board doesn't have much information about this photo in its archives of "an aeroplane on its way at lake Thingvallavatn" taken by Berit Wallenberg in 1930. Thingvallavatn is a large lake in Thingvellir National Park in Iceland, known as part of the "Golden Circle," a popular destination for tourists.
