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.

Superb pov and awesome colours of a fascinating place. The sharpness and dof are very good as well. I am really enjoying the photos of Iceland being put up on TE these days...fascinating country!

Just love these weird colours. Like the contrast between the foreground and black, volcanic rock. The patches of snow help too. Great atmosphere too with the billowing smoke at the base of the mountain.

A Landscape which is very similar to Yellowstone. Nice foreground with a layer of blue (a shame, the blue pool on the right is cut) and the background with the fumarolles is interesting too
