On Fire: Iceland's Youngest Volcano

By Ari Trausti Guðmundsson and Ragnar Th.

In On Fire: Iceland‘s Youngest Volcano, geophysicist, renowned writer and MP Ari Trausti Guðmundsson, and award-winning photographer Ragnar Th. Sigurðsson, combine their skills to present and explain the stunning development and fierce beauty of the early stages of the 2021 eruption.

At 20:45 on Friday, March 19th 2021, a volcanic fissure suddenly opened up on the Reykjanes Peninsula. Seismic activity had caused serious concern among the population living in the surrounding area. An almost eight hundred-year-long dormant period was now at an end and it was difficult to predict how the unrest would develop. The spectacular volcanic display in Geldingadalir (Fagradalsfjall), close to the most populated area of the country, attracted thousands of visitors who flocked there to marvel at the raw power and beauty of the eruption.

Am amazing book

I am only part of the way through On Fire. The photographs are so impressive, and scary. I am looking forward to reading more, and will pass the book on to my grandchildren and hope it will encourage them to learn more about how the planet works.

Beautiful AND informative.

We've been following Valur's reports on the volcano daily from LA, and ordered the book expecting just some nice picture coffee table book, and were so pleasantly surprised to find all kinds of super interesting geological information besides truly breathtaking photography. 7 stars!
