Iceland Review Photographer: The Lava Falls are Fantastic

Páll Stefánsson photographer has just landed in Fljótshlíd after flying over the new crater and landing on the glacier. He arrived at 7 o’clock this morning at the small airport near Múlakot farm but morning mist prevented the pilot on the two person plane to take off until 8.30.

Stefánsson reports that the lava flow has increased considerably and the lava stream now forms an even bigger “lava fall” than before. The small plane landed on the glacier, allowing the pilot and his passenger a close-up view of the new crater.

“Even though there is a lot of smoke coming up, we had a very good view of the new craters. The first thing I noticed is that the lava stream now seems to be much greater than before. It forms an even more dramatic effect than before, when it falls into Hvannárgil.”

Even though the area is now closed to tourists Stefánsson said that he saw three people at the site. They seemed to be in good condition and well equipped.
