Photographer's Note

Stokkur - translates to ‘The Churn’. 66ft spume every 5 minutes. An average of 7 tourists a week are scalded in summer as they test the heat of water in the thermal pools with their hands (& yes I saw a couple of people doing this very same thing!!)

It took me a while to get this shot as everytime the geysir erupted, it made me jump so I took a picture of the sky
