A warning sign blocks the road to Bardarbunga volcano, some 20 kilometres (12.5 miles) away, in the north-west region of the Vatnajokull glacier August 19, 2014. The threat of an eruption of Iceland's Bardarbunga volcano has increased, according to the Icelandic Meteorological Office, with 'intense seismic activity' and 'ongoing magma movement' reported at the site of the volcano. The heightened activity around the volcano which began with an earthquake on Saturday, was the strongest earthquake in the area since 1996. The aviation colour code, used to indicate the level of risk a volcano poses to air travel, has been changed to orange, the second-highest level the met office said. Picture taken August 19.
