Photographer Axel Sigurðarson went on a road trip to the Holuhraun eruption site to snap these beautiful photographs from the ground. He travelled from Mývatn lake through Möðrudalur and Krepputunga valleys, and encountered numerous scientists doing field research, including renown seismologist Ragnar “Skjálfti” Stefánsson (pictured below).
