Photographer's Note

In the 1875 eruption of Askya volcano, a vent near the north-eastern corner of the lake exploded and formed the crater Viti, which contains geothermally heated water.
Swimming in the turquoise-blue pool is a real highlight, the temperature of water is about 25C but the ambient temperature may be rather cold (i was there on August 14 and it was snowing)
---from lonely planet Iceland guide---

The picture is composed by six shots, stitched with Autopano Pro.

Reposted without black frames in order to have the capability to post the large panoramic version.
