Iceland's Strokkur Geyser

While visiting Iceland in November of 2012 we took a tour of the golden circle.  Included in the tour was a stop by the famous "Geysir," which is Icelandic's Old Norse for "to gush."  We get the english word geyser from this feature.

Unfortunately Geysir has a very infrequent eruption that is rare to catch.  Fortunately we only had to wait a few minutes before each eruption of Strokkur Geyser.  Below is a shot with Strokkur against the low winter sun.
