Lava Landscapes

Photograph by Jan Erik Waider.

Lava flows are, by definition, transient. In his LAVA series, photographer Jan Erik Waider explores the changing vistas and textures of Iceland’s Fagradalsfjall volcano eruption. Using a telephoto lens, he captures incredible details of the charred, cooling outer crust of the lava and the glowing molten interior. Only minutes later, fresh lava tore through, destroying these natural sculptures. You can find prints of his images on his website. (Image credit: J. Waider; via Colossal)
