A brand new spectacle in town.
A fissure opened up in Meradalir, Reykjanes earlier today, not far from the 2021 eruption site, shooting up fountains of fiery lava. We made a quick flight before the airspace was closed down.
These are quick rushes of the first moments of the eruption. In the days to come I will do a proper post. The Icelandic Coast Guard helicopters are seen in some of the images.
Raw video footage is attached below the stills.
