Gunnuhver Hot Springs, Reykjanes, Iceland - Iceland
Gunnuhver hot springs, Reykjanestá, Reykjanes peninsula, Iceland (March 2014)

The geothermal area of Gunnuhver is situated on the Reykjanestá which is the most south-westerly point of Iceland. It is easily reached by driving along Route 425 west of Grindavik which is close to the Blue Lagoon. This photo shows the crater containing Iceland's largest mud pool which is 20 metres in diameter. When visited in March, the pool was belching steam which was driven across the site by high winds. The steam had a sulphurous smell and it was often necessary to pass through the clouds to view different parts of the area. I was the only visitor at the time. The Reykjanesviti lighthouse can be seen from Gunnuhver and is only a short drive further along the 425.
