Volcano Geldingadalir erupting in Iceland

The Volcano Geldingadalir which emerged and erupted the first time in early 2021, photographed during an active phase in september. All of what can be seen in this photograph has not existed one year prior to the photograph. For less than a minute, a gap in the clouds lit the volcano crater with some diffused light, when this photograph was taken.
