Scalding Splash

Scalding Splash

Draining across a low hot spot, a creek flowing from Strokkur geyser and adjoining hot springs boils and splashes skyward into the late-afternoon sunshine, and against the dark background of a rare patch of Icelandic forest.  Zooming into the scene yields an antediluvian effect harkening to imaginations of Earth’s inhospitable infancy.
