Picture of the day for June 25, 2016

Wikipedia picture of the day on June 25, 2016: Lögberg (icelandic for Law Rock), Þingvellir National Park, Southern Region, Iceland. The Lögberg was the place where Lawspeakers (lögsögumaður) presided over the Althing, the national parliament, from 930 until 1262 (when Iceland pledged allegiance to Norway). Speeches and announcements were made from the spot and anyone attending could make their argument from the Lögberg.
