The lava field at Eldhraun on the south coast of Iceland was formed by the eruption of Katla in 1783 which caused widespread death and famine in Iceland, a mini Dark Ages in Europe and was, reputedly, one of the catalysts for the French Revolution. The lava field stretches for hundreds of square kilometres and is now covered in the most luxurious green grey moss. Image taken on a Leica M240 camera.
