Ugly Puddle

Ugly Puddle
by Marek Biegalski

This beautiful maar or volcanic crater bears the name Ljótipollur, which literally means ugly puddle. Nonetheless, almost all craters that have lakes within them are exceptionally scenic and photogenic. Ljótipollur is no exception with its red and vegetated slopes and visible lava layers at the brim, besides its beautiful turquoise blue water.
