of the lava fountains to capture his stunning series of images

 Lava flow from the fissure down
 the Hrunagil valley,
Only around an hour old, this lavaflow is falling from a steep cliff a few hundred metres from the main eruption

ash

The plume from the Icelandic volcano - seen as a grey-brown streak drifting across the middle of the image - is visible from space. It was imaged by the Modis instruments on two Nasa satellites as it blew towards the Shetland Islands

ash
Coating: Researchers at Sheffield Hallam University collected these particles of volcanic ash (seen here under a microscope) which fell on cars in the centre's grounds earlier today

Ice chunks carried downstream by floodwaters caused by 
volcanic activity lie on the Markarfljot river bank

Iceland
 
Around 800 people have had to be evacuated and 70 tourists were rescued after they were trapped by the rising flood waters


volcano eruption
Spectacular: Plumes of smoke shoot up from a volcano under the Eyjafjallajokull glacier in Iceland today which has erupted for the first time in 200 years

Iceland
The Eyjafjallajokull eruption is the second in less than a month and has seen hundreds of international flights cancelled

Iceland
Workers have been forced to smash holes through roads in Iceland to allow the surging flood water to escape out to sea

Iceland
Part of the glacier has melted under the ferocious temperatures causing the flood swell to pour down the mountain

Iceland
Experts are concerned the recent eruption could trigger another more powerful one from the nearby Katla volcano

Iceland eruption
The eruption has caused travel disruption across Europe as airspace has been shut down
