The explosive crater

This remains one of the most striking photos of my trip to Iceland.

This crater has been formed, nearly 3000 years ago, due to an explosion in the earth’s surface. It is called the Kerid crater and some tour companies include it in the quintessential Golden Circle tour of Iceland.
