Joey Helms, producer of audiovisual content, shared on his social networks an extraordinary and little-known view of the caldera of the Fagradalsfjall volcano, located on the Icelandic peninsula of Reykjanes, which erupted in March 2021, reports RT.
The incredible high-definition images show a "unique" perspective of the lava fountain ejected by the volcano.

To get the spectacular shots, Helms directed a drone equipped with 4k resolution cameras directly against the jets of molten rock.
"Was it worth it? Tell me. People crash and lose drones all the time, at least we had an epic final view," the author commented on social networks.
Periods of calm, and suddenly huge geysers of lava that can reach hundreds of meters high, visible even from the Icelandic capital, 40 km from the volcano.

Visible tens of miles around, bright orange geysers light up the sky, with shorter and shorter nights during this month of June.
The National Meteorological Office considers that one of the most intense lava jets observed exceeded 460 meters in height.
This cyclical activity is eerily similar to that of Strokkur, the most active water geyser in Iceland, located 100 km east of Reykjavik.
Lava rain can be deadly
The powerful lava salvos cause a shower of tephra (or pyroclast), fragments of solid rock, some still hot, potentially deadly, that fall several hundred meters from the crater.
There are many who walk to near the volcano, in the valley of Geldingadalir, near Mount Fagradalsfjall, 40 km from Reykjavik (AP).
As a result of several cracks, it has successively formed numerous small craters on Geldingadalir, only one of which is actually active.
