Holuhraun éruption fissurale (volcan Bardarbunga, Islande) - coulées de lave 13 sep 2014

The largest eruption in Iceland during 100 years has erupted approx. 200 million cu meters of lava within just under 2 weeks, feeding a lava flow that had reached a total length of almost 20 km by 13 Sep, with no sign of ending soon. The following pictures were taken during an overflight on 13 Sep.
