Last October I had the pleasure of returning to Iceland with my friend Brian Hampton to photograph the Bárðarbunga volcanic system.  Our Icelandic guide Kristján G Kristjànsson  owner of Mountain Taximade the trip possible and more importantly as safe as it could be around an active volcano. The speed of the flowing lava was impressive, faster than any river I have ever seen. As we photographed the northern lights the glow of the volcano was visiable more than 70 kilometers away.
