Geyser before outburst

My brother and his girlfriend had a trip to Iceland, i.a. to visit our cousin. Our cousin lives there, lucky fellow. Geysers are something that just has to be visited when you are on the borderline between the North American and the EuroAsian continental sheets. They also visited a place where the crevasse between the continental sheets shows. So there they were, looking at one wall rising and knew that they where looking at some very, very huge sheets separating. That's powers!


This is how the geyser Strokkur looks like right before an outburst. I don't know what Guinness says, but it has to be one of the biggest water bubbles in the world.
