Iceland once again lives up to its reputation as the “land of fire and ice”. There are more than 30 active volcanoes in Iceland, with one erupting every five years on average. After 15 months of earthquakes being recorded on Iceland’s Reykjanes Peninsula, a volcanic system erupted spectacularly in March 2021. Molten rock made its way to the surface in a valley near a flat mountain called Fagradalsfjall in the Geldingadalur region. The eruption is also notable because there has not been an eruption on the Reykjanes Peninsula for about 800 years.
According to geologists, however, the latest volcanic eruption on Iceland poses no danger to humans. The nearest inhabited place is ten kilometres from the volcano. The Blue Lagoon, a popular tourist destination, can still be visited without restrictions.
Volcanoes have fascinated me since I was a child. And Fagradalsfjall, whose lava forms fascinating streams, is the perfect visual object. I am very happy to have had the opportunity to create and present this video to you. They are hypnotic images that I can’t get enough of. And as always, I tried to edit the footage and blend it with the music in such a way that you inevitably become fully immersed in the scenery and atmosphere.
I hope you will enjoy watching. I would be happy if you give my video a “like”, leave me a comment and subscribe my channel for further videos. All your feedback helps me a lot, and I can promise you to show all my passion in my upcoming videos as well. Thanks in advance for your support and best regards!
