92. "Water nr. 14"
I used a long shutterspeed and of course a tripod. In reality the waterfall is about 50 cm. high.

90 Dettifoss, Iceland, 1999.

90. "Water nr. 12"
Dettifoss is Europe's most powerfull waterfall. The grey colour is caused by the glacial debri that is taken along. I used a shutterspeed of 1/8 of a second. (tripod)

Foam pattern on water after it cascaded over a waterfall.

88. "Water nr. 10"
The crystal-clear water of an Icelandic fiord. Note the farm on the right and you get an idea of the vast solitude of this beautiful country.

87. "Water nr. 9"
Most of the eruptions were a lot smaller than this one. So I have a couple of pictures with the complete water plume. Still I chose this one, although it is a pity that the point is not showing, but after all this is the most spectacular one.
Note the change in hue of the blue sky from top to bottom. Due to the crisp freezing weather and the absence of airpolution in Iceland you can see beautiful blue skies there.

86. "Water nr. 8"
The geyser Strokkur a fraction of a second before the eruption. A geyser is a kind of shaft in the ground filled with water. That water is heated by volcanic action. Water reaches its boiling point at 100 degrees centigrade if the pressure is 1 atmosphere. At the bottom of the shaft the pressure is a lot higher because of the water column above it. So the water is heated well above 100 degrees. Because hot water is lighter than cold water it slowly rises. More to the top the pressure is getting lower and lower because the water column is getting less high. At a given moment the overheated water reaches an area where the pressure is so low that the water abruptly changes into steam. Steam takes up a lot more space than water, it can only escape upwards. So the water column is pushed up into the air with an enormous force. In the picture you can clearly see the ball of steam that causes the water surface to take a round shape. After that the cooled-off water slowly flows back into the shaft and the whole process starts all over again. It's a fascinating spectacle.

The word geyser is related to the English word gusher and comes from Old Norse.

Bathroom with cold running water.
The Dutch are a very clean people, they even provide bathtubs for their cows.

84. Norway, 1988.

84. "Water nr. 6"
Here you can see that water is not blue, but that it takes on the colour of the things that reflect in it.

79. "Autumn nr. 11"
I thought the nice weather was over, so I started on a series about water. But it is still beautiful fall weather.
There are still a few more to come with the theme autumn.

78. Ireland, 1990.

78. "Water nr. 4"
The sky did not reflect in the water here, that's why the water looks black here. In picture nr. 12 the water looks blue because of the blue sky.
