Cracked Ground - Gunnhver geothermal areas at Reykjanes, Iceland

Gunnhver is one of Iceland nicest geothermal area and likely one of the least visited despite being less than an hours drive from Reykjavík. It is a very active area and is still forming and changing with new wents and pools appearing. This makes the area a little tricky to photograph as it is quite dangerous to walk amongst the geothermal features as the ground can be very unstable with boiling hot water underneath.
