Photographer's Note


The obligatory photo to be published for anyone visiting Iceland is that of the famous Geysir, indeed a show that has few equals in the world, also easy to take pictures, but be careful not to get wet!
Geysir, sometimes known as The Great Geysir, is a geyser in southwestern Iceland. It was the first geyser described in a printed source and the first known to modern Europeans.The English word geyser (a periodically spouting hot spring) derives from Geysir. The name Geysir itself is derived from the Icelandic verb geysa, "to gush", the verb from Old Norse. Geysir lies in the Haukadalur valley on the slopes of Laugarfjall hill, which is also the home to Strokkur geyser about 50 metres south.
Eruptions at Geysir can hurl boiling water up to 70 metres in the air. However, eruptions may be infrequent, and have in the past stopped altogether for years at a time.More info on wikipedia.


La foto obbligatoria da pubblicare per chi visita l'Islanda è quella del famosissimo Geysir, in effetti uno spettacolo che ha pochi eguali nel mondo, anche facile da fotografare, ma attenzione a non bagnarsi! Informazioni su wikipedia.
