Something extraordinary is happening in Iceland…

Lava just keeps on flowing from the Bardarbunga volcano. It started to erupt in August last year.

The lava field now spreads over more than 80 square kilometres, as amazing now aerial footage shows.

High values of sulphuric dioxide are still being recorded and this has, in the past, led to evacuations of local villages.

In 2010, a cloud of abrasive ash from the Eyjafjallajokull volcano, in a different region of Iceland, closed much of Europe’s air space for six days after an eruption under the ice cap.

But this time there has been no disruption – allowing a birds eye view of this masterpiece of Mother Nature.
