Photographer's Note

HVERAVELLIR - Central Iceland

In the centre of Iceland, on a mountain road called Kjalvegur, there is a unspoiled and protected area called Hveravellir (hot spring plains).

The blue color of the hot spring is due to light reflection on silicium in suspension in water. The yellow color coming out of the 'geyser' is sulfur.

For me this is Iceland. I cannot thik of any other picture to represent Iceland. What are your views?

Picture taken in RAW format saved in sRVB for TE.
