New on 500px : A fleur de peau by thibaultbarron by thibaultbarron

Dans cet univers abstrait où vapeurs, odeurs de soufre et gargouillements contribuent au sentiment de proximité qui y règne, mosaïques pastelles et accrétions sédimentaires dessinent un sol d’une grande fragilité. La puissance du phénomène géothermique met le coeur de la Terre à fleur de peau.
In this abstract world where vapors, odors of sulfur and gurgling contribute to the sense of closeness that prevails, pastel mosaics and sedimentary accretion draw a very fragile floor.

Looking into a mud spewing geothermal went at Gunnuhver, Iceland.

The blue color of the mud comes from the silica rich waters surrounding the area. When the mud dries it cracks and forms these interesting patterns. The hole and the cracks are actually quite small as they are shot very close with a wide angle lens. It did not stay there too long as I am sure the lens and camera would not handle boiling hot mud very well in case the hole spewed something out.
