Iceland volcano: Drone footage captures stunning up-close view of eruption
A drone captured stunning close-up shots of lava bubbling in the crater of a volcano on Tuesday that began erupting near Iceland's capital Reykjavik on Friday.
0:15 The drone operator braved the snow and biked seven kilometres to the volcano which is not accessible by road, and captured lava pouring from the crater, down the side of the volcano, and into a lava field.
The eruption, which occurred near Fagradalsfjall, a mountain on the Reykjanes Peninsula in southwest Iceland, followed thousands of small earthquakes in recent weeks and was the first on the peninsula since the 12th century.
Please note: We did not slow down or manipulate the speed of the footage for effect. However, the music was added for your enjoyment.

    I know they are trying to be artistic but I would've been a lot more interested if the drone had something to read temps and I could see those temps on the screen as it flew.

    0:08 You literally could not ask for a more perfectly timed Nature shot as a cinematographer... The fact that the cone even had a breakoff micro collapse splash up while flying over it was a beautiful coincidence...

    Man will try to manipulate people whenever he wants to. Man thinks he can take over the land and all its possessions whenever he wants to. Man believes he alone has the power to control. This goes to show us that this earth is in control of us. And it will let us know its power whenever it wants to.

    I find it very hard to believe that a drone got that close without melting or being pelted out of the sky. IF this is true footage... kudos to you!

      Or they sacrified 2 or 3 drones in the process Edit: and why would it be a fake ffs, they film the volcano since week one. You do like to make brain-knots, do you?
