Blowing off Some Steam

There is something absolutely mesmerizing about watching a geyser as it is about to erupt. The pure energy and raw force of such a natural phenomenon are amazing to view, especially close up. The way that nature heats water buried below the surface, allowing it to escape as sudden burst of steam, and then repeating the cycle over an over again that is almost hypnotic to watch. To see such small amounts of water convert into huge plumes of shimmering vapor is truly spectacular. For this week’s Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge, Big and Small, we decided to share a few photos of the famous Geyser in Iceland. We really enjoyed seeing the natural wonder during our visit there this past February.
