At about 8.30 this morning Iceland Review’s photographer, Páll Stefánsson, boarded a small plane and went on his way to fly over the new crater. Stefánsson has almost been living at the eruption site since the activity started 10 days ago.
His 20 page photo spread in the next Iceland Review is nothing less than spectacular. The issue is devoted to the eruption and the Fimmvörduháls area, one of the most beautiful walking paths in Iceland.
We will report from Stefánsson as soon as he lands, but here you can see a video made after his helicopter flight over the eruption over the weekend. The trip was made on a very small helicopter and the door was taken off to make photographing easier. On the way you see the large Eyjafjallajökull and the stream of people. You can also see the many cars at the site on Saturday and a small stranded plane.
