The Valagjá fissure in the south-central Highlands of Iceland is part of the Hekla volcanic system.
These photos were taken on two different occasions. Both the times I had to contend with gale-force winds which made holding the camera steady very challenging. This is an alien world, the strangeness accentuated by the splash of red amid the bleakness of the surroundings. In the first image, I was lucky to record a fleeting moment of a localized (spot)light event. Hekla‘s white dome is seen in the distance.
