I am just commencing a longed-for reread of "Lord of the Rings…" Terrifying thread ... wondering if Tolkien saw real life volcanos . Even in " The Hobbit"

I know there are many videos available but this one is really great with a suprising twist.

Top photographer Ólafur Þórisson flew a drone over the eruption site yesterday and captured an incredible video of a powerful magma flow in the most active crater.

The eruption in Geldingadalur has not stopped and the eruption activity has remained stable for a while now.

Looking very close into a crater with very little activity the past days and to find still glooming lava below the surface in there.


Impressive lava-tornado.

Was watching the eruption live here:

And about 30 mins ago a 'smokenado' developed just to the west of the on screen map. I rolled back and tried to screen capture it. Quality isn't great but here it is:

In Australia we would call that a willy willy - a tornado is something that picks up houses, cars and cows.
