Here is the video in better quality, let's see if Masto can embed it:
In this clip, you can see new lava flowing over the old lava and re-melting it. I found it quite fascinating to watch!
The last clip from the volcano-trip!
This was happening right in front of me. Could have jumped in 🔥
@__h2__ Wow! I was very close to this area 2 years ago, and regret that this small little thingy didn't erupt back then ;)
Do you actually see it growing, or some significant activity except smoke? And how does it smell? 🤓
@mxmehl Yes, we were sitting on the side where the mountain was basically half-open with a constant stream of new lava flowing out!
The smell isn't that bad. It's mostly the ground/moss burning at the edges of the lava that create smoke.
The actual vulcanic gases that are dangerous don't have a strong odour I think. But search and rescue teams are on-site the whole time with gas detectors.
@__h2__ Wow. Thanks for the photos and videos. Please, post more :P Iceland is beautiful, especially its flora in summer.
@lightone All the volcano content is posted now :)
But maybe I will go back sometime soon!
When did you spend time here?
@__h2__ I didn't 😕 Never been in Iceland. But I'm generally interested in Scandinavian countries, so have read some, watched travel videos and seen many photos :) Hopefully, one day I'll be able to see it all with my own eyes.
@lightone Well, I hope that you make it some time! It is worth it :)
But maybe also difficult, depending on where you live now. And especially during the pandemic.
But if you do come, say hi! There are many fedizens here!
@__h2__ Thank you, I will! :) Maybe we need some new hashtags for travelling fedizens (so that they can meet other fedizens along the way). #fediMeetIceland or something like that. I used to follow country and city tags, but at first the only posts I found in Mastodon were escort posts :p Had to mute a couple of servers to filter that out. Now country, city tags mostly show news bots. Fedizens rarely post and tag photos. We need better location hashtags and also a consensus to not spam them 🤔
