A selection of 5 images taken over a period of 2 seconds as the geyser called Strokkur erupts. It goes off every 5-10 minutes or so, but is pretty unpredictable as to exactly when. The trick is to watch the water as it comes and goes in the pool and when you see it starting to 'bulge', hit the shutter.

Fortunately the wind direction meant it was possible to get a back illuminated view without getting soaked by falling scalding water!

Great sequence (not easy to capture).
