WATCH: Drone captures mesmerizing footage of erupting volcano in Iceland

After thousands of mild and not-so-mild earthquakes in Iceland, Mount Fagradals ejected a stream of lava from its belly, spewing the river down its side like a glacier of fire.

Many people flocked to the nearest road to the mountain to look at the glowing embers but one photographer flew his drone right over to produce the most phenomenal scenes.

Bjorn Steinbekk took multiple videos of the lava eruption on the mountain in Fagradalsfjall Iceland.




Many users asked whether the drone survived this brutal trip, to which someone related to the photographer replied it did.

According to Icelandic Meteorological Office (IMO) an eruption was anticipated in light of the multiple earthquakes. However, the eruption was not severe.

The volcano had been dormant for over 6,000 years. According to local reports, the lava was so bright that its glow could be seen from the outskirts of Reykjavík, which is roughly 32 kilometres away from the site of eruption.
