After my last post the volcano on Iceland has been puouring out lava, and two more fissures opened up. It has become a bit quiet after the last one opened, but it’s still activity, and there’s a chance it will increase activity again I guess.
There’s so much amazing video and photos out there, but this guy in particular got some seriously epic drone videos. I shared a video by hime earlier too. Check out his channel for more:
Ruv.is got a constant live feeds of the volcano, and here you can watch the one with a view from Meradalir:
Right now you can see the three fissuresm in the above live feed, which I shared in my previous post too. The fissure one on the right is the original one, the one on the left is the second, and the middle one is the latest (for now).
Here’s another live cam from Ruv.is. This is the one with a view from Geldingadalir, and it shows the main fissure which looks a bit like a classic volcano now:
As many of you probably know by now, there’s an active volcano on Iceland. It’s not a huge one (atm), which is good in many ways, but also for the fact that we get a lot of sublime photos and videos from there. Some drone footage is out of this world.
I’ve been paying attention to Iceland (and others) for quite some time now. The arthquake activity has been intense with tens of thousands of earthquakes leading up to the eruption itself.
Anyway, I want to share som videos and YouTube channels that are cool – so here they are. Note that if you see people or helicopters, they’re mostly scientists and press. Civilians are not allowed there.
Let’s start with the live video from ruv.is:
Here’s a timelapse from the first 3 days and it shows the more or less steady flow of lava:
This is a news broadcast with interviews and some spectacular footage. Check out the lava fried hotdogs at the end:
Amazing drone videos (check out his YouTube-channel for more videos):
Speaking of live video, here’s one that collects the video feed from several volcanos around the world:
The imagination of people know no ends. This is a brilliant video, and the message from Greta is just as important in a death metal setting of course. 🙂
Watching and listening to David Attenborough is something I’ve done ever since I was a little boy. He has been with me as a grew up, became an adult, and even today he still with me in this journey called life.
His multiple series covering flora and fauna has always been a remarkable view on how diverse, and sometimes complicated, everything on earth is.
Netflix’ Our Planet is his latest series of which he is the narrator. I looked forward to this one as well, like with all the others, but this series is very serious, and it’s showing us footage (proof if you like) on how our planet changes due to climate change/global warming. It’s depressing to watch obviously, and these are things we’ve known about for decades now.
It’s a good series, with high quality footage of a lot of things never shown in this way before. For example, the use of drones gives us an extra dimension in several of the scenes.
Like Attenborough is saying, it’s not too late if we change our ways right now. Check out THIS video, at OurPlanet.com, of David Attenborough explaining what needs to be done.
