The erupting volcano photography of Iurie Belegurschi, a photographer based in Iceland, is utterly spectacular. It gives people a bird's eye glimpse at the fierceness of such a natural phenomenon. Instead of focusing on the after effects of molten lava slowly running down the lip of the Bárðarbunga volcano, he captures the most active part of the erupting volcano, the way it sprays upwards with such heat and ferocity.

Extremely active, according to Guide to Iceland, the erupting volcano photography shows how thespewing lava reached heights of up to 150 meters. Surrounded by equally massive clouds of smoke, the images are impressively dramatic. By the looks of this erupting volcano photography, Belegurschi could have been in danger if he got any closer.
