Lava Fields

Iceland is born of volcanoes, and signs of its fiery (and ongoing) birth are visible everywhere. This is a view across lava from 1973, when an eruption on Heimaey island threatened to destroy the local town. The situation was looking grim, until resourceful scientists figured they could control the magma flow by means of pumped seawater, which cooled it into berms and allowed the townspeople to channel it away from their homes. The fields of boulders and tephra form an unearthly landscape, especially with the low clouds and mist that was moving in as I was taking this shot.
