Aurora on Canvas
It’s gonna blow, get there and wait for the eruption!
The rumbling of thunder a midst the veil of thick black ash plume puts things into perspective for you. Maybe we feel the ground shake and each time wonder what is going on down there. The thin crust of this planet has a leak and from this leak spring some of the deepest secrets of the universe right before our eyes… and yet we are still paralyzed by our lack of understanding and our senseless need to take pictures of it.
We take a banana and your longest lens and visit some good vantage points.
Seasons: Running all year round.
Timings: The tour will start early evening in Summer. This trip may involve shooting through the night hours (22.00-06.00) and returning to Reykjavik at ‘Stupid o’clock’ in the morning. We will revert to regular hours towards September.
Several Icelandic volcanoes have been making noises lately. Around 8 volcanoes are currently being monitored around the country, of these, the closest to Reykjavik is Hekla. She is a 10 year strato volcano who last erupted in 2001. Some eruptions before the Viking days were similar to a typical Indonesian volcano. She is connected to Eyjafjallajökull and Katla. She is a fairly predictable volcano and has been erupting at roughly 10 year intervals in recent centuries.
Locations and activities: We take a journey to wherever the volcano can be seen. It could be on a by bus, super jeep, helicopter, boat, but we will get to there
