Video: Active Volcano Up Close, Drones Fly Over Lake of Lava for Awesome Photos and Footage

Molten hot lava has temperatures from 700 to 1,200 °C (1,292 to 2,192 °F) so taking footage up close is extremely hard. According to the US videographer who had the drones fly over the Holuhraun Lava Lake, most of the ones they fly out there came back either partially melted or severly melted.

Eric Cheng captured footage of smoke and fire burning off the black marbled lava. The lake of fire is part of the huge Holuhraun Lava Field, which started erupting in the Nordic country in 2014. It is around 84 square kilometers, about the size of Manhattan. The videographer explained that since the volcanic heat was ferocious and the surrounding temperature was sub-zero, he had to carefully pilot each drone.
