Hverir

Earth on boil.

At the base of the mountain Námafjall in north Iceland is one of the most infernal sights on the planet: a smorgasbord of fumaroles, solfataras, boiling mud pools, slopes of red clay, colourful patches of mineral deposits and geometry in clay. The Earth here is literally seething and to add to the stew’s charm, this is an active volcanic zone.

Check out the video following the still images.

    The video is really great. We’ve been there on a couple of different trips and many time during those trip but the views from overhead really give Namajfall a other worldly view. Thanks for posting really enjoyed viewing the video.ReplyCancel

      Bob – thank you. Yes, looking at it from a height makes possible a wide variety of compositions otherwise not available.ReplyCancel
