“The Hverir geothermal area near Lake Myvatn in northern Iceland is a barren wasteland of boiling mud pots and hissing steam vents, creating a desolate other-worldly landscape when viewed with feet planted on terra firma,” says Elenbaas. “But from the air, it takes on a whole new perspective. The mineral deposits left behind by the geothermal activity create swirling patterns of oranges, yellows and blues in this ‘birds’ eye’ view taken with a DJI Mavic Air drone. The three mud pots in the lower left remind me of the infamous ‘Kilroy.’”
