You’ve met Dr. Kah-Wai Lin here on DIYP through his icy photos that could make you fall in love with winter. This time, this incredible photographer has treated us to something much hotter. He visited the Fagradalsfjall volcano in Iceland and took aerial photos and videos of the eruption. And just like his other work, these shots will make your jaw drop in awe.
In March this year, the Fagradalsfjall volcano near Reykjavik, Iceland erupted, creating the first eruption in the area after 800 years. It attracted many spectators, and some of them captured the power and beauty of the eruption. One of them is photographer Anna Isabella Christensen. She took a slightly different approach and instead of just shooting the volcano – she took some magnificent self-portraits in front of it.
The eruption of Iceland’s Fagradalsfjall volcano attracted thousands of spectators this spring. Naturally, there were many photographers and filmmakers among them, so we’ve seen some epic footage and photos of the event. But Joey Helms’ aerial video is probably the closest we’ll ever see an active volcano. Joey flew his drone so close to the volcano that he literally crashed it into the exploding lava.
After more than 50,000 earthquakes, the residents of Iceland were prepared for a volcano eruption. And last Friday, it finally happened. Around 300,000 cubic meters (10.5 million cubic feet) of lava poured out, attracting visitors from all over Iceland. Photographer Iurie Belegurschi was one of them, and he took some stunning aerial shots of the eruption, showing all its beauty and power.
Videos of erupting volcanoes and molten lava have always fascinated me, ever since I first saw them on TV as a kid. And thanks to drones, we can get closer as never before to this incredible force of nature. Bjorn Steinbekk risked his beloved drone to bring us this incredible footage that takes us on a flight right over an erupting volcano!
Amongst Russia’s Kuril Islands is the uninhabitable island of Raikoke. It’s uninhabitable because it’s essentially just a giant volcano. The last eruption at Raikoke was in 1924 and it’s been dormant ever since. But a few days ago it erupted in grand fashion.
Yes, it’s possible. I did indeed capture what you see above in one shot. Although some of the Internet seems to disagree, it’s true. What you see above is the Milky Way, the moon, Mars, Saturn, an iridium flare, and lava from the Kilauea Volcano of Hawaii. I took this image during my visit to the Big Island of Hawaii in September of 2016 to document the 61G lava flow. I never imagined I’d walk away with such a scene, but the camera gods were watching over me that day. So, before this image gets torn apart by those who think it’s not real, I’d like to present the RAW image to you below. This image was shot on a Nikon D810 with a Nikon 14-24mm lens. Settings were F2.8, 25” at ISO 2500.
It’s been two weeks now since Hawaii’s Mt. Kilauea erupted and it still shows no signs of slowing down. Since its initial eruption, we’ve seen a lot of videos and photos of its destruction. However, this photo taken by astronaut Drew Feustel from ISS is arguably among the most breathtaking.
One of the world’s most active volcanoes, Kilauea in Hawaii’s Big Island, erupted on Thursday. The eruption is threatening hundreds of homes, as molten lava is bursting from fissures that opened in the Leilani Estates. Mick Kalber has filmed the eruption from a helicopter. It shows the biggest fissure eruption he has seen so far: it is impressive, but at the same time truly heartbreaking.
