Photographer's Note

Krafla is a caldera of about 10 km in diameter with a 90 km long fissure zone, in the north of Iceland in the Mývatn region.
The Krafla area also includes Námafjall, a geothermal area with boiling mudpools and steaming fumaroles. Since much of the ground is covered with yellow sulfur deposits and other chemicals, the landscape is great to take pictures.
