Iceland volcano eruption drone shots.

When you owned a $1,000 drone, would you fly it into the mouth of a volcano? Smartly, you don’t need to, as a result of photographer Garðar Ólafs(*(*20*)*) did it for you. He took his 4K DJI drone so on the subject of the mouth of Icelandic volcano Fagradalsfjall that a part of the drone melted. Fortunately, he stuck all of it on video.

The video looks as if one thing out of a film, with intense orange-red lava, a soot-covered volcano, and a backdrop of snowy white peaks. In an interview with PetaPixel(*(*20*)*), Ólafs says “I slowly reduced the drone till all I may just see used to be erupting lava, and after I appeared up, I didn’t see the drone anymore.” Yeah dude, you flew it right into a volcano!

Whilst Ólafs’ drone nonetheless flies, one of its lighting fixtures doesn’t paintings, and a few of its sensors (together with the obstacle-avoidance sensor, which will have to had been going nuts throughout the volcano) are now not practical.
