Weekly Photo Challenge: Foreign

 

 

 

 

Golden circle. Geothermal field in Iceland

Alright, this doesn’t have anything to do with food, but I saw The Daily Post’s photo challenge and I couldn’t resist.

I took this photo on my recent trip to Iceland. The mineral pool is part of a geothermal field; the same geothermal field where Geysir is located. When I was in Iceland, I felt like an Earthling on the wrong planet. I was overwhelmed by how foreign it felt. The alien blue colour of this very hot water with the stark moon-like surroundings of this photo pretty much sums up the experience that is Iceland. Awe mixes with wonder and fear (so many dangerous possibilities!) and it’s easy to forget where you are.
