Photographer Joi on the edge of the crater of the erupting volcano in Fimmvörðuháls/Eyjafjallajökull. Iceland april 2010. While observing this photo I was amazed how relaxed he ectually is standing there wile the volcano spreads the melting lava around the area. I guess the lava is about 1000-1200°C at this point.

Several newspapers and magazines around the world published this shot.
