Strokkur Geysier in mid-height action. The Strokkur Geysier is probably the most welknown Geysier in Iceland. We were lucky to see this magnificient Geysier "erupt" about 6-7 times within about 30 minutes. Very much worth seeing in real life, the pulsating water build up is incredible.

Note: Need help with the state and city from some friendly Icelandic people or others in the know - sorry, I don't recall the correct name...

What an incredibly cool and unique photo this is. The low lying sun gives a great backlight to the geyser. Thanks for sharing, straight to my favs!


Hi Jonas
A lucky shot! The colours here are great. I love how the geysier jets up into the blue sky and the mist covers the sun slightly. Very interesting. TFS Janice

Hei Jonas. A beautiful capture of this geysir. Maby you should have fixed the shadows just a few steps. But it is good as it is as well, with the geysir and that almost clear blue sky in the back.

Great shot. I love the timing, lighting, BG and POV. Keep it comming and wellcome to TN.

Wow! This is so great. The blue of the sky and the sun just make it but the spouting water is really of course the most amazing thing. Perfectly cpatured - thanks for sharing. Jx

Hi Jonas,
Great shot, excellent timing and perfectly framed. Beautiful colours and I like the exposure too, it's quite dramatic. Great work.

Well captured natural phenomenon with a brilliant sky in the BG, Jonas.

wow - this is stunning, the composition is excellent and the back lighting from the sun works really well, but I don't like your signature.

Hello Jonas,

I like this picture a lot! At first (from the thumbnail) I thought it was a little dark, but seeing the bigger version I think it looks very mystique. The low sun, lightening the geyser from behind looks marvelous. The sky with all the white stripes is fabulous aswell and I really love the colors. Well done & TFS!


I agree with you that it is best if this spectacular sight is seen in person. BUT, BUT, your imaging & posting is sooooooo very P.E.R.F.E.C.T. that I, from my
desk in Canada, can "FEEL" the water build up. TFS.
Great WORK. Congratulations,

Beautiful shot! The colours are really nice and the atmosphere so clear!
Good work, bye Tom

Wow, very interesting..
And the sky behind with the sun and clouds make it a great picture. :) love it.


Just beautiful! Thanks.


Wow, this looks amazing!


Beautiful natural event captured in correct lighting. The picture is sharp and the colors are nice.

I really like this photo and I think the sun, geyser and cirrus clouds contast well with the dark foreground to give this picture that something extra.

Hi Jonas,

A warm welcome to TN! Great way to start too, this is a fascinating and excellent photo, very well captured - tricky exposure and timing both handled well.

Nice work - TFS, Doug
