These remarkable images show what it is like to swim in the gap where the North American continent separates from its Eurasian counterpart. Taken in the Silfra fissure in southern Iceland, the pictures detail the rip that divides the two tectonic plates, which are drifting apart at a rate of 2 centimetres every year.

I'd pay good money to experience that the trouble is, i'm claustrophobic but I reckon the serenity would ease my fears.

Apparently claustrophobia isn't too much of an issue but the water is so incredibly clear its not uncommon for divers to suffer from vertigo!
