Gateway to hell

Gateway to hell, originally uploaded by hkvam “Námaskarð has very active solfataras (sulphurous mud springs) and fumaroles (steam springs), none of which contain pure water. The mud craters are uncommonly large and are well worthy of the travelers attention, whereas many of the steam craters are drilling holes that have been covered with rocks. There is no vegetation in this high temperature area and the ground is sterile and very acidic due to the effects of the fumes from the mud springs.”

Lens: Sigma 10-20mm at 10mm.

Istlikal Cad. Istanbul, Turkey, originally uploaded by Damiel.

The photographer: “The story behind the picture is that in this street there is an old tram running. On this tram there were always small boys trying to get a free ride. I was standing on the rear platform and watched this boy fall off the tram, which runs in just walking speed, and the picture was taken while he were trying to catch up on the tram. Nothing is planned on the picture, just point and click, and try to avoid the direct sun. But it is one of my own favourites…”
