I did a trip to #Iceland's youngest #volcano on Sunday... and wow, it's really hard to explain what it feels like to be witnessing something like that first hand.
*A small picture thread*
It's already grown so much in its first week of life! It supposedly emits 20m³ per second.
The lava-covered area around it seems cool, but most of it is hot underneath. And everyone once in a while fresh lava spills over the rest, re-melting it. Basically up to where you are sitting and watching.
During an otherwise sunny day, suddenly a small snow-storm appeared and created this absolutely surreal moment.

This is about as close as one can get to the "mountain" currently. They expect the entire valley (including all the places I took pictures from) to be covered by lava in two weeks.

I will post some videos tonight!
This video shows the #volcano in action. Digital zoom is of course not the best, but I do think you get an impression of what was going on 🌋
Here is the video in better quality, let's see if Masto can embed it:

Of course embedding your own video doesn't work. Youtube links OTOH are automatically turned into video widgets. 🤬
