Caption

Heimaey eruption. Lava erupts from a fissure during the Heimaey eruption in Iceland. This eruption took place in 1973, when a 2 kilometre long fissure opened on the south-west flank of the cone. Cinders and ash soon covered the fishing port of Heimaey, its 5000 inhabitants having been evacuated. Once the eruption had ceased, the inhabitants returned to rebuild the port.
