Volcanic eruption in Iceland

Iceland is growing some new land on the Reykjanes Peninsula. An eruption in Geldingadalur is spreading lava all over the place. It looks amazing on the livestream, but I of course also wanted to see it in real life.

We took a plane from Akureyri - Reykjavík in the morning and flew over the eruption a few times. And same thing in the evening again on our way back to Akureyri.

In the beginning experts said the eruption would probably last only a few days or weeks, but according to the newest research it could also last for years. A similar eruption in Hawai'i lasted for 35 years!

When I took the plane I still thought it would be over in a few days, so I decided I just HAD to see it and fly there. But when it keeps going for a while I hope to hike there too some time. For now, these are the photos from the flight. Some of them are also for sale on print.
