Many people have such love for "blue" images. This one satisfies this urge with great visual rewards. The coble stones dominate the foreground and then the eye moves slowly up swallowing the delicate beauty of the cloud reflection and then that magical fog that rises upwards to show off a lazy and easy moving cloud formation with a delicate blue sky. Then we follow the billow of smpke as it sweeps to the left... An image to gey lost in with no need for improvement. Bumping up.

What a beautiful photo. The subject and monochromatic scheme give it a very airy and ethereal feel. Nicely composed with good detail and focus throughout.... 8

Very nice photo. Lacking in a little of the "wow" that the photos I voted higher have, but technically/compositionally sound. 7

I spent a week driving around Iceland, mainly eating in gas stations and sleeping in sleeping bags. Best photo trip of my life. We ended the trip with a relaxing day at the Blue Lagoon - heaven! Thanks for bringing back the memories and posting such a beautiful picture. Love the colors and the steam mingling with the sky.

Love the blue cast inthis one. Great foggy mist hanging, and the bricks leading to the water are really nice.

I think I'd crop out all of the structures to the left. I love the deep rich tones and the bricks leading to the water. Beautiful clouds. 7

blue lagoon is a great title, and love this due to the various blue tones with drifting clouds coming from the horizon. Super shot, well done
