A new mud geyser has formed near Gunnuhver mud spring in Reykjanes peninsula, Southwest Iceland.
The clay is flying 20 to 30 feet in the air like a small mud volcano!
Police closed the viewing platform at the geothermal area on Reykjanes after piping hot clay started shooting up many meters into the sky. These mud eruptions were accompanied by rising steam.
Photographer Olgeir Andrésson shot pictures and a video of the new erupting geyser near Gunnuhver. As he walked away from the mud pot, a loud roaring noise started ringing. It was the explosion that liberated the mud fountain. Such eruption occurred regularly every ten minutes or so.
