Spouting

Gossa is Icelandic for soda and also refers to a volcanic eruption and a geyser eruption.. The word is also related to our word Gush and is a relative of Geysir. Geysir is an Icelandic word meaning “Spouting”. Strokkur is the only regularly erupting Geyser in Iceland and can be seen at Geysir. Strokkur’s eruptions only last a second, but there is only 4 – 7 minutes between eruptions.

Half Second

This was an unusually long exposure of Strokkur. Half a second was the shutter speed at a subject I normally like to use a fast shutter with. This long exposure captured a blend of the blue bubble and the movement of the eruption. I usually capture the full eruption with a vertical frame and the bubble with a horizontal frame. As this was traveling upwards, I felt that a vertical frame was the best way to compose this geyser photo.

This is at the Fjaðrargljufur river canyon in South East Iceland. The unassuming river winds like a snake between the rocks.
