Fortunately for us, some others were luckier and captured some amazing footage. Here is Enrique story.
Winter 2010, the stunning landscape of Iceland succumb to the arctic cold. Beaches and lakes get frozen, but something unexpected is going to happen. The earth shakes, warms up, and suddenly a big crack open up at the top of the glacier Eyjafjallajokull. Lava, smoke, ash and fire comes up from the depth of the earth, melting everything in its way.
And the movie. It is long (8 mins) but worth it (1/8 of the viewers liked it!):
This is an awesome movie to showcase a grand event. It shows both the wow factor of the volcano and the beauty of Iceland.
Every time I feel like going back to my Iceland clips to complete the edit, there is always someone coming up with something so much better that I feel ashamed to post mine…
