Iceland Photos 4: Nesjavellir Geothermal PowerStation

Laurie says:

These photos are of Nesjavellir, the second largest geothermal plant in Iceland. ┬á I went by it on the way to ├×ingvellir. The gate was open so I went in and explored. The photos were taken in the pouring rain – the very local pouring rain. It seemed to be only directly overhead.

It turned out that you were not supposed to go past the facility gate. There was a small sign in Icelandic, but it had no “do not enter” symbols so, not surprisingly, it was missed. I felt extremely lucky to have seen the plant close up. It’s stunning in an industrial way, in a setting of an empty plain.

I looked at these last week and couldn’t find the images I wanted. I thought I was finished with the Iceland photos, but tonight it was easy.

It really was fabulous being there, even in the pouring rain. Next week’s photos will really be of Estonia.
