“Heimaey - Vestmannaeyjar Islands”
The Westman Islands in the South of Iceland. In 1973 there was a sudden eruption of the Eldfell volcano (Eldfell = Mountain of fire) which is the left one of the reddish cones in the picture. The lava flow would have blocked the harbour if the residents hadn’t stopped it in time by pumping tons of sea water on it which cooled the lava down before it could reach the harbour. The volcano to the right is the Helgafell volcano which recently erupted about 6.000 years ago.
