Nader Nazemi-Descending into a Dormant Volcano

Descending to the magma: Look at the bottom of the picture, and you can see fearless explorer Iurie Belegurschi, 120 metres into the heart of the volcano

These are breathtaking images of inside a volcano. Pretty amazing ! 

They are ferocious when on the attack and unpredictable in nature – but absolutely stunning when viewed from the inside.

For these are the spectacular images taken by photographer Lurie Belegurschi, who descended into the heart of Thrihnukagigur volcano, near Reykjavik in Iceland, to show the extraordinary beauty of the magma chambers buried deep within the dormant volcano.
 
Perhaps the explorer felt secure as he descended to 120 metres – the equivalent of three Statues of Liberty piled one on top of the other – because it has been 4,000 years since the volcano last erupted.

The extraordinary Thrihnukagigur is situated southeast of Reykjavik in Iceland hasn’t gone off for 4,000 years – which is lucky for Ieurie
