Geyser eruption

Strokkur – Geyser Eruption

Home » Prints » Landscape Prints » Strokkur – Geyser Eruption

This photo shows Strokkur erupting to full height backlit by the Winter sun. Strokkur is affectionately known as the smaller brother of the original Geysir (which rarely erupts now).

On this Winter’s day I positioned the low sun behind the erupting geyser. As Strokkur erupted, the Arctic sun backlit the giant water spout which makes a thousand tiny droplets look like jewels.

Strokkur is a frequently erupting Geyser close to the famous, but depreciated Geysir. The old Geysir gave the place its name and also every other Geyser in the world.

I took this Iceland Nature photo on a cold Winter afternoon. The arctic sun was low in the sky & I positioned the shot so that the sunlight would backlight the erupting geyser. A fast shutter managed to capture the tiny droplets as they evaded the main spout of boiling water.
