Photography of a volcanic eruption in Iceland

Thursday, April 01, 2021
In February 2021, swarms of small earthquakes were felt on Iceland's Reykjanes peninsula leading experts to warn that magma was moving beneath Geldingadalur valley and could soon erupt.

At the same time, Thrainn Kolbeinsson, a freelance photographer & creative content creator specialising in outdoor advenures, products & travel photography was there ready to capture the Geldingadalur volcanic eruption in Iceland.

From his photography series of the event:

On Friday evening, 19th of March, at 8:45pm the earth suddenly opened up and the night sky turned red. The Icelandic Coast Guard helicopters were the first on scene and it was hard to tell how big it was, only that it was moving fast. 

The eruption happened just short of 10km (6 miles) from the nearest town.
