Sunday Snapshot: Námafjall, North Iceland.
Sitting at the foothills of a spectacular volcano, Námafjall is a high-temperature geothermal area with fumaroles and mud pots which boil with relentless energy.
Colorful, vivid minerals and gigantic mud craters make this natural attraction a truly awe inspiring sight to behold. Stand back and watch as the mud bubbles to temperatures above 200 degrees celsius, marvel at the sulfur crystals of many different colors, and walk through the steam springs, noting the sulfur in the atmosphere.
The geothermal field is located in Northeast Iceland, on the east side of Lake Myvatn.
