Fill'd her with thee, a daughter fair,
Come, and trip it as ye go
On the light fantastic toe.

Excerpt from "A'llegro" by John Milton (1631)

At Geysir in Island in the glorious light from the mid-November afternoon Sun. This is basically an unprocessed image, straight off the sensor, apart from the fact that I cropped it to give me the composition I desired. Yes, the light was so intense that I did'nt realise I was overexposing slightly, but hey, I suppose those blown out spectral bits add more to the air of mystery & otherworldliness I was feeling at the time...eh... :-)
