Photographer's Note

The Blue Lagoon in the Rekjnes peninsula in Iceland was created when seawater flowed in from the Svartengi CHP plant and accumulated in the lava landscape. The residents of the neighborhood discovered that the water had a soothing effect on skin diseases and surroundings were also beautiful. This was the birth of one of the main tourist attractions in Iceland. The Blue Lagoon was opened in the 1980s. The large pool with its 37degree water is a very comfortable place to relax. Since the Blue Lagoon is located between Keflavik International Airport and Iceland’s capital Reykjavik is sort of a natural stop for most tourists visiting Iceland
