Strokkur geyser erupting at sunrise, Iceland

We drove to the well-known Strokkur geyser before sunrise despite the dark cloud cover and cold, windy conditions, expecting the area to be packed with tourists. We were delighted to find ourselves all alone, photographing the geyser right as the early morning sun peaked out from under the clouds.
