Thanks Bill and Hans for the kind comments. It sure was a unique experience. Perhaps a 51 sec live video with stationary camera can transmit a little more of that experience:

(It was very windy, so a lot of noise on the sound channel of the D500.)
That is impressive. The fluidity, if that is the word, of the lava is out of this world, it is like water. Been lucky to se other footage of the lava coming out of the crater.
Thanks for sharing.

The video really helps get the point across. Amazing to see the inside of the earth leaking out...

Thanks John, Bent and Jack, glad you liked it. Here is one final bonus image that grew on me after I uploaded it to my web site:

Stunning Øivind - both the images and the narrative.

I've only been to Iceland once but would love to go again and if possible do a trek like yours!

Mercury or Venus perhaps?  ;D

Colin, I really also enjoyed the aspect just being out there, doing the hike. Although the day trip was not quite a s impressive with respect to glowing lava, just the experience out in the landscape with the lava fields was really special, and I think still would be worth it even after the volcano has completely died down.
