Hveravellir, central highlands of Iceland

Blue Pool in Hveravellir, highlands of Iceland. Looking down to the geothermal pool, it seems to have endless blue depth. The colored liquid is rich with silica minerals among other geothermal materials.The Icelands most famous outlaw Fjalla-Eyvindur was maybe the first to discover Hveravellir, when hiding in the highlands of Iceland for about 20 years, after steeling some sheep from farmers. He was clever to make use of the geothermal area to survive the cold winter in Iceland.
