This hot gusher is one of the most famous spots on Iceland. Every 5-10 minutes the water shoots out to a 15-30 meters high fountain.
The Geysir Center is also worth a visit with lots of details about Strokkur itself and vulcanos and their eruptions. There is also a floor panel which is simulating an earthquake.

That sky on your third image is just awesome... wanted to add mine I took during the day with a very boring sky, but those are already so good ;-) I just added some more details about the Geysir Center nearby, which was also nice to visit.

I took my picture around midnight and we were lucky that all tourists left already... ;-)
