Amazing! What's the explanation?

The red is ferrous and other oxides, the bright yellow is exposed tufa rock, I think. (I looked up "Icelandic Geology" by Thordarson but didn't find mention of this particular site.)  This kind of red staining is quite a common sight especially in the area near Veišivötn.

The bright yellow is likely sulfur.

This is one of those great but unfortunate shots where the truly unusual natural occurrence looks like an image defect.

There's another shot of it on the web -

Maybe bleeding, but it looks more like the iron has been kissed by light. Wonderful landscape.

The hue difference between the two images is really quite astounding.  The one posted here looks almost magenta, while the Flickr version is more of a, well, rust colour.

FWIW, good as the photo above is, I think the Flickr image is a stronger, more interesting photograph.

EDIT: Rajan, I'd not looked at the attribution of the Flickr image and I assumed it was yours. I'd not have made the comparison if I'd realised (I'm not that tactless). Apologies.

Jeremy,

No need to apologize at all.  You are right that the view in the Flickr image is richer.  To get close enough to that site, it is a long walk from the drivable dirt track (you are not allowed to off-road in Iceland).  We left our superjeep on the route and made the trek but didn't really have time to explore compositions - there was wind and the threat of rain loomed - so I had to make tomatoes with the ketchup at hand.  One would need at least 4-6 hours of scouting to get the lay of the land and I intend to go back there.

Each time I look at one of your Iceland photos, I get more and more desperate to go there myself. I also find the way you alternate (almost) shots of Goa and Iceland in your posts here very entertaining. Keep it up!
