- the HOT Glacial Paradise!
"Careful... it's boiling hot!"
Standing inside the caldera of the multi-hued Krafla volcano, I was photographing white steam raging out of a craggy vent, when a friend issued the warning.
With boiling mud pots, fumaroles puffing plumes of white hydrogen sulfide gas, and reddish-orange mountains towering over us, the moon-like landscape near Myvatn Lake in Northern Iceland, could easily have been the Devil's kitchen!
And yet, just to the south, lay tens of spectacular, glowing white glaciers slowly marching out to sea from the Vatnajokull ice cap. Outside of the polar regions, it is the largest mass of frozen ice in the world!
Featuring steep plunging fjords, erupting volcanoes, twisted black lava fields, and thousands of marvelous waterfalls, the diversity of this beautiful land is augmented by millions of nesting seabirds, colouful puffins, and hundreds of whales frolicking in the ocean waters nearby.
