Moss colonized a lava hill in Iceland.

Bright green moss has colonized a hill in the middle of Maelifellsandur, a black desert of lava and volcanic ash in Iceland. The hill is all what remains of a once active cinder cone, ground down by ice of the nearby retreating Maelifell glacier.

The Lakagígar are actually a 25 kilometer long row of craters in South Iceland. They were formed in an eruption that went on in the years 1783-1784. The lava flow from this fissure is the greatest flow of lava that has flowed in historical times on Planet Earth. Around 12 cubic kilometers of lava flowed over 580 square kilometers of land.

In the mile Laki Fissure appeared in the terrain of south Iceland. Within 7 months, some 3 cubic miles of lava issued from around 300 craters that grew along the fissure. The Laki Fissure’s biggest crater is 393 ft across, and contains a lake.
