Iceland #4 The unforgettable fire!
Can't get enough of the great combination of the ice cold weather and the boiling ponds, springs and tubs, their crazy-high temprature stems from the cross-Icelandic underlying geothermal heat, which often carries the strong smell of sulphur with it and is a strong reminder of the burning lava which constantly lies and boils beneath the surface.
In the photos:
1. The 'Kvika', a natural geothermic foot tub near Reykjavik's lighthouse and right by the ocean, where one can soak one's cold, aching feet in the 40° water. Was a magical experience to do that on a stormy, freezing afternoon.
2. A boiling spring at Geysir national park.
3. The 'secret' lagoon, a huge and less crowded geothermal hot spring in central iceland. Swam there in the hail!
4. Didn't catch an impressive Geyser erruption on camera, but was still amazing to witness the unstoppable power of nature up close.
