Seljalandsfoss Seljalandsfoss Gígjökull, Þórsmörk  This glacier played a key part in the 2010 eruption of Eyjafjallajökull.  The ground that Brenda Selwyn and Laurence Selwyn are standing is ash fallout from the eruption which fills what used to be a 50m deep lake.  The weather was not good so we could not go to where we had originally booked.  In this  video  Saeli describes the eruption a few months after it happened. Ice cave at the bottom of Gígjökull, Þórsmörk
Across the fallout from the 2010 eruption of Eyjafjallajökull, Þórsmörk.  This used to be a 50m deep lake filled with meltwater from Gigjökull. But after the eruption of Eyjafjallajökull in April/May 2010 it is now dry and filled with volcanic ash. Seljalandsfoss Laurence getting wet from Seljalandsfoss Seljalandsfoss
