    Grindavik, Southwest Iceland


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     prismatic traveled to Iceland with his partner for a winter holiday. He took this photo the morning of Nov. 16 at Blue Lagoon in Grindavik, Iceland. "It was mid-morning, around 10 a.m., and the weather kept alternating between periods of heavy snowfall and breaks of bright sun through the clouds. I wanted to capture the otherworldly sense that came from the combination of different elements." His photo was featured as CNN's Travel Photo of the Day for January 17, 2014.

    Steam rises over the waters of the Blue Lagoon geothermal pool outside Reykjavik, Iceland. Many travelers choose to visit the lagoon on their way to or from Keflavik Airport because of its location between the international gateway and Reykjavik city. The juxtaposition of the 100F degree (38C degrees) ice blue water with the falling snow that day made for a pleasantly memorable experience. Iceland is in many ways a place defined by its sharp contrasts, making this encounter a typically Icelandic one.
