Strokkur is a fountain geyser located in a geothermal area beside the Hvítá River in Iceland in the southwest part of the country. It is one of Iceland’s most famous geysers, erupting once every 6–10 minutes. It is usually mistaken with The Geysir from which the name geyser was created. The Geysir eruptions have in the past stopped altogether for years at a time. Today the only geyser in that location that erupts is Strokkur from the photograph. It was raining all day long during my visit to Strokkur. Of course there was a crowd of tourists so it was hard to take a clear shot. However I decided to keep people in the frame to show the size of this geyser. I used the Tokina 11-20 mm f/2.8 wide angle lens at 11 mm to capture Strokkur’s eruption in one frame. Thanks to “Tokina Polska” and “NEXT77” who supplied me with this gear. Strokkur is located very close to the main road. It is very easy to reach it. It is a must see location in Iceland despite the crowds. For higher resolution and more B&W Digital photographs visit the gallery

Additionally I am attaching below setup preview of taking that photograph. “The making of” picture was taken with mobile phone.
