Fire and Ice

A dramatic sunset colors Iceland’s landscape and sky. Your Shot member Konrad Kulis captured this aerial shot while “en route to the volcano Holuhraun,” he writes. The volcano, which last erupted in 2014, is located just north of the expansive, 3,200-square-mile (8,400-square-kilometer) Vatnajӧkull, or Vatna Glacier.
