Gone to See Iceland 2014 – Winter Photography Workshop. Day 6: Golden Circle.
One of our stops along the “Golden Circle” was to see Strokkur, a geyser in the Haukadalur geothermal area beside the Hvítá River in southwest Iceland. It should be noted that there are many tour buses and lots of people that do the “Golden Circle” every day. Unlike, Old Faithful in Yellowstone, you can get quite close to Strokkur. Also, this geyser erupts more often than Old Faithful. I have several sets of images (slide shows and time-lapse video) from a distance where you can see the people coming and going, and then up close where you can see the clear blue “Bubble Burst” as the geyser erupts.
