This is a video from originally a live, hour and a half recording, and after an hour, the guy is seeking out the camera on a rocky hill that is a live feed being provided by Iceland to view the approach of the lava towards the ocean, although above where the parking lot is located ...

... the part where he look s back towards the lava flow from the postiion of the live feed camera gives quite the perspective of what the valley looks like and how high the mountains are near by.

Film of how the lava coming out of crater starts flowing into what they are calling "lava tubes", although also over flows the crater enough where it then begins flowing down the side of the volcano anyway ...

Flowing lava can now be seen from the highway in Iceland ...

 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eiU4OVfBI1w

It probably isn't long before the lava reaches the highway, and keeps it from being driven on through the area.  Folks will eventually need to come from one way or the other to hike and explore and see the volcano with its activity.

Large amounts of lava flowing from volcano in Iceland today ... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m8RrXX0PRHc

Also that video shows that there are now three retaining walls that are in place to shape if possible how the lava will flow.

And this video ... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m8RrXX0PRHc ... shows the view from the eastern side from a mountain top called Big Ram ... fairly freaking amazing shots from this vantage point today.

Here's more video from the hiker who's been spending a good amount of time, 29 trips so far, into the volcano area in Iceland ... and this shows how much lava has been flowing down into area on the north side of the crater area ... and you can tell his wife is enjoying the trip ...

The volcano in Iceland goes quiet and lava stops.  But is it for good or is it just sleeping and more will arrive?

Here is amazing footage from a drone by one of the videographers who has been hiking into the area ...
