This is the kind of sink hole you have to watch out for. 
Some of them are full of steam  and

pool
others have a huge amount of steam.  It is easy to stay warm in Iceland during the winter - just connect to the steam heat.
This is a sink hole partially filled with water.  But the water is quite hot, probably scalding.  You can take a hot mud bath here with prior arrangement. However, we did not indulge.

This area is part of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, where the two plates of the Atlantic Ocean can be seen to be separating.  There used to be a lake here until the separation caused the lake to drop.  The Prime Minister has his summer place down below.
The silver-white line extending into the distance is a steam line.  Steam is piped into the cities for heat.
