Caption: Geothermal mud pool. Steam rising from bubbling mud in a mud pool. Mud pools form in geothermal areas when there is insufficient water to form a hot spring or fumarole. The heated water from underground turns the surrounding rock and soil into hot mud. Photographed in the Krisuvik geothermal area, the Reykjanes Peninsula, Iceland.
