This was taken shortly after the geyser erupted. Geysir is one of the few Icelandic words which we use in the English language, along with berserk, which dates back to Viking times apparently!

It’d been horrendous weather in Reykjavik and Selfoss, but then changed in minutes as soon as we got to Geysir and the sun started to rise (at about 11am!)

Taken in January, 2013.
