The most active geysir at Geysir in Iceland. This erupts every 5 minutes or so, of its own accord, no soap added.

Great shot. Sharpness? Yes perhaps, but I would have had lots of camera shake in your situation.

I like the angrily bubbling water at the base of the geyser, bet it burns your feet Smile

Would have been nice to see the water sharper, but otherwise brilliantly captured! And an unusual shot at that! Well done!

Thanks folks, I will have to look at the other shots from the sequence, and see which is the sharpest.

The bubbling water sat quietly simmering for a few minutes, before this spectacle. One of the curious things was that when it stopped, the noise stopped instantly (it was loud), and then the water in the air fell, and the onlyt sound was this hot rain.
Iceland is expensive to go to, but the photo opportunities are immense!
Other shhots from the sequence are on www.icelandphotos.20m.com.

Brings back great memories for me. I loved Iceland so much. You are right about the costs there but it is worth it. I am off now to check out your web site. Must upload some of my own Iceland pics.

Click,
Peter

When were you in Iceland Bucks? I managed to see the big one go a couple of times last week but only a few metres or so. I have to say for photogs I prefered the predictability of this one.
