Rauðibotn

Volcanic wonderland.

Rauðibotn – lit. red bottom – is among the swarm of craters along the gigantic Eldgjá fissure in the Highlands of Iceland. It is connected to the currently active Katla volcanic system centred under the Mýrdalsjökull glacier.

Said to be the largest uninterrupted volcanic canyon in the world, Eldgjá came to be in the 934 AD eruption that produced one of the most prodigious lava flows ever recorded.

These images were taken in 2014 during a Cessna 207 flight over the area.

On this day, kids in Iceland dress up in costumes and enter shops seeking candy. Custom requires them to break into song to claim the goodies.
