Blesi Hot Spring (and Strokkur Geyser) – Iceland. Blesi (the blazer) is a hot spring pool at the Geysir Area in Iceland. It’s just a few metres away from the two geysers Strokkur (which you can see erupting in the background) and the Great Geyser. The waters of the pool are turquoise blue, but you can’t really see that because of the reflection. I’ll post a closeup below where you can see the source of the pool under the surface, leading to the centre of the earth!
