The last stop on our day long tour of the Golden circle brought us to arguably the most famous attraction on this route. Arriving late to destination has its perks, when we arrived here little after 10pm there were only a handful of photographers who also dispersed after a couple of minutes leaving just me and my friend to enjoy the Geysir to ourselves.
The sun was already behind the Laugarfjall hill but still throwing up great light that was reflecting of the small pack of clouds hanging in there. The Geysir has a heart of its own, erupting sporadically throwing the warm Vatn high up into the air. Looking upwards at the shooting plume of Vatn, for a moment the clouds and the plume appear one.
As the cold started sinking in we called it quits and hit the road driving aimlessly towards north west and looking for a suitable spot for our first wild camping experience in Iceland. The next part of the Icelandic adventure will continue in a few days time.
