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.
