Iceland’s Fagradalsfjall Volcano is Erupting

From Fubiz:

After about 50,000 earthquakes and nearly 6,000 years since its last event, the terrain of Geldingadalur, located about 20 miles from Reykjavík, has been transformed into a scorching scene of molten lava, ash and explosions splattering the sky – the setting is so dramatic and eerie that the internet has even compared it to Lord of the Rings’ Mordor.

The shot above is my favorite in the Fubiz gallery. You should take a look at the lot. Kolbeinsson’s work with the lens is excellent. Find more of his work on Behance and Instagram.

Earth is an incredible place and natural wonders make us feel small, as indeed we are.
