ICELAND - AUGUST 2008
Iceland is known as the Land of Ice and Fire due to the Glaciers and the Volcanoes. According to Wikipedia, Iceland «has about 130 volcanic mountains, of which 18 have erupted since the settlement of Iceland. Over the past 500 years, Iceland's volcanoes have erupted a third of the total global lava output». This post is dedicated to the Solheimajokull Glacier and to the Strokkur Geyser.
"SOLHEIMAJOKULL - It seems that the glacier had retreated an average of more than 50m yearly in the last times"
"100º BOILING WATER"
"BLESI HOT SPRING"
"STROKKUR is a geyser in the geothermic region beside the Hvítá River in the southwest part of Iceland, east of Reykjavik"
"AT MAXIMUM HEIGHT - A bit like the Old Faithful in the Yellowstone Park"
