Lava field


Categories: [Europe]  [Iceland]  [Landscape]  
Lying on the geologic rift between the Eurasian plate and the North American plate, Iceland is the most geologically young land in Europe. Thus, a lot of its surface is covered with lava fields from recent volcanic eruptions.
Here is a picture shot on the small Heimaey Island which was devastated in January 1973. The eruption destroyed most of the habitations and enlarged the island by about 2.24 km² !
