Through Frozen Land
A hot water stream makes its path through frozen land at Strokkur Geysir in Iceland
The Strokkur Geysir is a popular spot on the Iceland tourist circuit. It is crowded pretty much year around including in the winter despite the cold.
When I visited, instead of just photographing the erupting Geysir, I ventured a little away from the crowd to see if I could find something different. I followed this stream flowing through the snowy landscape. The going was tough as the ground was slippery in some places. After a couple of slippery misses, I wasn’t feeling very adventurous and decided to turn back.
As I was turning, the sun peeped out through the clouds, illuminating the far off mountains as well as patches of brown grass which peeped above the snow. The picture does little justice to the mesmerizing landscape of white pierced by patches of brown engulfed with steam coming out of the land.
