Iceland's Fagradalshraun volcano lies still for a while before it suddenly spits red molten lava geysers high into the air, which can be seen in an impressive display from the capital Reykjavik.
More than 40,000 earthquakes have occurred on the peninsula in the past four weeks, a huge jump from the 1,000 to 3,000 earthquakes that have been recorded every year since 2014.
Iceland has reported a volcanic eruption on the southwestern Reykjanes peninsula. The Icelandic Meteorological Office (IMO) tweeted on Friday.
The peninsula southwest of the capital Reykjavik is a seismic hotspot with at least 40,000 earthquakes in recent weeks.
After several weeks of increased seismic activity on the Icelandic peninsula Reykjanes, a volcanic eruption has finally started not far from the capital of the island state.
