Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Geothermal mud pools. These mud pools are caused by water being geothermically heated in underground chambers, which results in steam bubbling through the mud. Mud pools are often associated with hot springs and are found in areas where the Earth's crust is relatively thin, allowing the internal heat to escape. Photographed in Namaskard, Iceland.
