The Fagradalsfjall volcano in Iceland began its long-awaited eruption a couple of weeks ago, marking the first eruption on the Reykjanes Peninsula in more than 800 years.
Fortunately, drone cameraman Vilius Petrikas was there to capture the story in the making by flying his camera over the site.
The stunning images show the main volcanic cone and surrounding smaller cones erupting, while a valley surrounded by mountains slowly fills with lava.
Vilius, 30, who lives in Reykjavik, described seeing the eruption site for the first time: “I was speechless… It is very difficult to describe how it looked and felt in person, the power was overwhelming.
“I still can’t believe what I saw, and I can’t wait to go back there to feel the energy of our powerful nature.”
By looking at Vilius’s work, you are seeing the first time the Fagradalsfjall volcano has erupted in 6,000 years.
