View from the summit area of Eldfell in northern direction. This volcano only formed in 1973 during a major eruption devastating part of the island of Heimaey. The lava flow in the centre of the photo almost blocked the harbour entrance. The steep mountain in the background is Heimaklettur (283 m).
