Close up of Icelandic volcano

A fearless cameraman ventured within 15m of molten lava to capture these apocalyptic scenes from the recent Icelandic eruptions aftermath.

Despite the fast-flowing lava trickling down from the crater, Valdimar Leifsson, 61, risked his life to get the stunning close-ups. A giant burning mass of molten remains can be smouldering in the foreground as the lava continues to spurt from the crater behind. (Caters News)
