Iceland Industrial 2

Geothermal Plant near Reykjavik, Iceland
I have been told that over 85% of the total energy in Iceland comes from local renewable energy sources and that minimum 85% of all homes in Iceland are heated with geothermal energy - quite amazing....

I read that there are over 200 volcanoes and 600 hot springs in Iceland and my host told me there are minimum 20 high-temperature stream fields of at least 150 degrees centigrade and some can be much warmer...he also told me that renewable energy provides 100 percent of their electricity - another amazing fact....

Today's image was photographed last year at one of the many Geothermal Power Plants in Iceland - hoping to visit a few more this trip...

Image Management:

Phase One p65+
Mamiya 645DF
47MM Lens
three image HDR using NIK HDR EFX Pro
Photoshop CS5
Lightroom 3
