Geysir on Canvas
£44.50 – £91.50 inc. VAT
Vertical photos look great hanging on wall. The erupting geyser at Geysir is called ‘Strokkur’. and truly deserves a vertical frame to explode into This Icelandic geyser spouts off quite regularly. I once timed it as regular as 5 mins between eruptions. You still have to be there for an hour though to catch a good Geyser eruption properly. I did exactly that on this Winter afternoon before tourism went wild. I positioned myself so that the sun was directly behind the vent. I knew the geyser would block out the sun with it’s thick jet of steaming water and I wanted to use the sun to give a powerful backlighting to all the tiny droplets of boiling water. This great combination of water and light make this a compelling Landscape photo print.
Geysir is the spot in Iceland with the most dynamic natural springs and fountains. The name of the spot really gave us the word ‘Geyser’. ‘Geysir’ – in Icelandic signifies ‘to spout’… and surely that is their specialty. This captivating, natural wonder is one of the features on the Golden Circle Tour in South West Iceland. Strökkur is portrayed as Geysir’s younger sibling as it is much smaller than the main Geyser which used to steal the show. The ejections are more incessant and happen with high regularity. The photographer’s test is to either catch the blue globe which happens not long before ejection or to catch the height of the tallness of eruptions. The scene soon afterwards is only a ghostly shroud of mist. Camera settings to catch and freeze the details are quite fast, but timing is of the essence when you are taking a Geyser photo.
