Laki crater

a crater of the Laki fissure

Previous Index Next

A bit northeast of Kirkjabæjarklaustur in Icelands south, there is a vulcanic fissure called the "Laki fissure". On top of it sit many smaller or bigger craters. On this picture one of it can be seen. In reality it is not as impressive as it seems on the picture: It is about 30m high. The black lines, which run over all it, are paths. But many of these are closed.
