Amazing footage of the volcanic eruption

Photographing the 2023 eruption at Litli-Hrutur in Iceland

Photographing and visiting the new eruption in Iceland was a fantastic experience. We embarked on a long hike to witness the mesmerizing eruption near a picturesque mountain known as Litli-Hrútur (Tiny-Ram). Nature painted the sky splendidly as the sun rose, casting an ethereal glow over the landscape. The light display was nothing short of awe-inspiring, leaving us spellbound in the presence of such raw beauty.

In this video, we let the footage do the talking for us. We did our best to capture and photograph the untamed power of the erupting volcano. From the fiery lava flows to the billowing ash clouds, every frame showcases the sheer magnitude and intensity of this natural spectacle.

The sun rises above the mountain Keilir and somehow, the white smoke from burning moss surrounds the eruption. Below the lava fills in the gaps. The Mavic 3 drone was on the edge of burning. The LED lights under it had started to melt, but everything works and the drone is fine. The altitude was about 38 meters. Obviously too low for the safety of the drone.
