This hypnotizing top-down drone shot, captured during sunset, provides a glimpse into the early stages of the Litli Hrutur Eruption that began in July 2023. Just three days into the eruption, the warm hues of the setting sun cast a golden glow over the landscape, enhancing the dramatic scene. The eruption, characterized by its effusive lava flows, marks a significant event in Iceland’s volcanic history. Unlike explosive eruptions, such as those seen at Fagradalsfjall in 2021, the Litli Hrutur Eruption involves the relatively gentle release of lava from volcanic fissures. As the molten lava flows steadily from the eruption site, it cascades across the landscape, reshaping the terrain in its path. This type of effusive eruption is common in Iceland and contributes to the island’s unique geological features.
