Eyjafjallajökull and Fimmvörduháls

When we looked at the volcano in Iceland, March 2010, (Fimmvörduháls) we took videos, too.

The videos are taken by my husband, (who has his own blog here) but I want to show them here among the photos:

The actual erruption has formed a big pile of ashes that are between us and the main fissure. We therefore only see the fountains going up behind it.
The lava flow, though, comes down towards our side of the mountain. It is better visible in the darker pictures and videos. In the daytime footage it is only the steam that comes up from it, that you can really see.

The lava streams were relatively slow so motion of the streams is not destinct in the videos but the darker it got, the more we could see of actual motion.

youtube has many spectacular videos of the erruption. It is worth searching out!
