Moving on to Geysir, the home of the original geyser after which all others are named. The one that is currently erupting every few minutes is called Strokkur, reaching heights of 30m. We had visited on the grey evening before and made a return with the sun lighting the scene. Fortunately I could get the sun positioned behind the geyser and not be downwind of the release of boiling steam that causes these eruptions.

Then it was a matter of watching and waiting for a big eruption. It often did a second not long after the first when you were not expecting it or sit churning the water that sits in the pool (Strokkur means churn in Icelandic) keeping you on tenterhooks. The shot was taken from about 5m away with the Sigma lens at 10mm.
