Geldingadalir at Fagradalsfjall Volcanic Eruption │ Iceland Photo Gallery

“The hole to hell”.

by: Rafn Sig,-

Í dag fór ég í annað sinn upp á Fagradalsfjall og þá með konunni minni Eden til þess að kíkja á eldsumbrotin.  Við röltum þarna um í dágóðan tíma og að lokum fundum við “Holuna til Helvítis”.

Mikið hefur breyst, fegurðin og krafturinn er sá sami.

Geldingadalir eru djúpir dalir með breiðri grasflöt á Reykjanesskaga, nálægt Fagradalsfjalli. Þar er þúst á flötinni (eða þún var þar) og er sagt að þar sé Ísólfur á Skála grafinn. Vildi hann vera grafinn, þar sem geldingarnir hans hefðu það best, en sagan segir að hann hafi látið dysja sig í dalnum þar sem sauðir hans undu hags sínum svo vel.

 Að kvöldi 19. mars árið 2021 hófst eldgos úr sprungu í dölunum, fyrsta eldgosið á Reykjanesskaga í 800 ár.

Today I went up Fagradalsfjall for the second time and then with my wife Eden to check out the volcanic eruption. We strolled around for a good while and finally we found “The hole to hell”.

Much has changed, but the beauty and the power is the same.

Geldingadalir are deep valleys with a wide lawn on the Reykjanes peninsula, near Fagradalsfjall. There is a small hill (well it was there) on the field and it is said that Ísólfur at Skála is buried there. He wanted to be buried in the valley where his sheep were so well off.

  On the evening of March 19, 2021, an eruption began from a fissure in the valleys, the first eruption on the Reykjanes peninsula in . . . All info at: https://www.patreon.com/RafnSig
