Gateway to hell



Gateway to hell, originally uploaded by hkvam “Námaskarđ 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.”
Námaskarđ geothermal area, Mývatn, N-Iceland
Lens: Sigma 10-20mm at 10mm.
ISO 100, f5.6, 1/50
