If you have been to Yellowstone you know you can’t walk off the boardwalk and onto the geyser area. In Iceland it’s a little different, at least where we went it was. This area had very few roped-off places. There was one vent you could actually stick your hand over, not the smartest thing to do but you could. This shot was taken from a roped-off area with many vents and some bubbling mud beneath the platform. I waiting for a long time to get the steam just so it would just frame the mountain in the distance and not obstruct it. It was one of the few clear days we had in out two week adventure.
