When the scars on the surface of Earth unveil steaming hot sulphur smokes and boiling muds, creation takes place and shows us that our planet is very much alive and constantly renovating itself.
An image showing a different aesthetic approach to the extraterrestrial Hverir geothermal area in Iceland. Unlike my previous published photos from this place, this one does not feature the Icelandic midnight summer sun. It was shot in September 2015, during my first visit to this unforgettable geothermal spot. There are so many possible angles to shoot here, but this composition certainly turned into my favorite of the whole session.
