Hverir or Namaskard: two names for the same geothermal site a few kilometres away from Lake Mývatn.
I love Namaksard. I can't go to the area without stopping, even when it's -11°C! Here, where the earth's crust is so thin that geothermal phenomena occur before my very eyes.
Although the vast ochre terrain seems ordinary at first glance, I can see thousands of details when I draw closer: little cones with canary-yellow tips, steam coming from the ground, a little pond full of steel-blue water from which bubbles escape, etc.
I always spend a lot of time here taking photos during my stays in Iceland because every detail is fascinating and unique. The ground beneath my feet is alive; at the slightest jolt, the landscape changes and it seems different each time I visit.
