Photos and movies from geysers on Iceland.

I already talked about hydrothermal activity in this post. But then after writing it, we went and did the golden circle tour and now I have even more images and movies!

First, this is what the field looks like in which all the hot springs and geysers and what have you are located.

In this field, there are different tastes of hot springs. Some are just hot, others clearly boil.

Some are small geysers.

And then there is the big geyser. As you will notice, I got a bit movie-happy. But – in contrast to most other tourists – we actually figured out how you can see whether it is likely to erupt soon or not. And then we found the sign explaining it…

So this is what it looks like from up close.

And there will be more when I’ve figured out how to rotate a movie.
