The most well known photographer in Iceland, Iurie Belegurschi, has just captured these remarkable photos from this week's lava eruption in the Holuhraun lava field. The lava field is being fed by the Bárðarbunga volcano, which has become incredibly active in the last couple days. For the last month, thousands of earthquakes in the region had both residents and photographers closely monitoring the situation, as it seemed a full scale eruption was imminent. While it is still to early to tell how long or intense this eruption will last, these photos clearly show that Bárðarbunga is indeed still awake, and refusing to go to sleep - at least not without putting on an incredible show first.
