More from Eyjafjallajokull

As ash from Iceland's Eyjafjallajokull volcano continued to keep European airspace shut down over the weekend, affecting millions of travelers around the world, some government agencies and airlines clashed over the flight bans. Some restricted airspace is now beginning to open up and some limited flights are being allowed now as airlines are pushing for the ability to judge safety conditions for themselves. The volcano continues to rumble and hurl ash skyward, if at a slightly diminished rate now, as the dispersing ash plume has dropped closer to the ground, and the World Health Organization has issued a health warning to Europeans with respiratory conditions. Collected here are some images from Iceland over the past few days. (35 photos total)

@ #89 re: this volcano vs. human output and resulting climate change; Actually, the CO2 generated by this eruption is dwarfed by the CO2 emissions averted from grounding 60% of European flights over a short time.
Makes you realize there are people don't have much of a clue about numbers or chemistry or cycles such as carbon/water/sulfur, etc.

The people who see faces and stuff in the cloud are hilarious. It's called pareidolia, it's not a religious experience, it's just your human brain that likes to see patterns and faces especially.

The CO2 deniers wondering why we should reduce CO2 emissions when there will just be volcanoes ... it's like wondering why you shouldn't take a dump on the floor after someone's dog already did. And the people who say that NOW they can see why the volcano was such a big deal have the same problem. No sense of scale means your visualizations fail. And if a failed concept of proportion drives your judgement, it's easy to see how you can be so absolutely and unequivocally wrong.

I want to just shrug and ignore stupid people, and wait for them to be proven wrong. I won't live long enough to see how badly they ruin the world after all.

Mom Nature is a woman with an attitude. She reminds us on occasion that humans are defiantly not the most powerful force of change in the world. She clearly has ownership of that title. I hope air traffic returns to so degree of normalcy soon.

My God! What great shots! Each of #5, 8, 11, 12, 14, and 19 can be visual aids for the very definition of “sublime. So does #33, but it is more on the scary side than mysterious;; it reminds me of what I “saw” while I was under anesthesia during a surgery in 1986. Just plain scary! #9 and 29 are darling; someone ought to use them in a children’s book. And #15. . . does the word “stampede” mean anything to these guys?

This is a wonderful collection of photographs!

That said, I'd like to point out that amateur photographs (i.e., those not affiliated with news organizations) are doing a spectacular job capturing the event as well. I'd argue that they're doing an even more amazing job.

I've compiled a gallery on Flickr which collects some of the best work seen depicting the eruption of the Eyjafjallajökull Volcano:

#113, you are wrong: "Agence France-Presse (by way of Drudge/Breitbart) puts the volcanic belch from Eyjafjallajökull in perspective. The Iceland volcano is “emitting between 150,000 and 300,000 tons of carbon dioxide per day, a figure placing it in the same emissions league as a small-to-medium European economy."

If you think all the planes in Europe generate that much CO2 a day you are nuts.

I just wanted to respond to the idiot who made the comment about not taking a dump on the floor because the dog did it. Nice try at ridiculing people's intelligence, but your comparison does not wash Einstein. Volcano's have been belching for millions of years and we have had no evidence of horrible global warming. You'd think if the gorbal warmist theory held true the earth would be a flaming ball by now. It doesnt because MGW is a lie and we have all know it for a long time.

Now go hug a tree or take a dump on your floor.

BTW how does the lightning all fit in with this? I had no idea there was lightning involved in an eruption.

You've done an amazing job capturing the moment of beauty, power, humanity and so much more, words can't even express the pictures.
Looks like Mother Nature is real ______ off. Think we all should do our part on recycling. Stop taking so much from the earth, and nuturing it a little more. My prayers are with all people, animals, and vegetation

I have never made a comment to anyone before but, for some reason it just felt right.

To # 152 - You seem like you (might) have some education, to bad you can't combine it with your "brains imagination" and have some fun and compassion with life instead of comparing it to a dog taking a dump on the floor. And as far as you comment on failed concept of proportion that drives your judgement. Maybe you would live longer if you changed your judgement and not be so angry, and stop worring about who is right or wrong.

Definition of Pareidolia (pronounced /pærɪˈdoʊliə/ pa-ri-DOE-lee-ə) is a psychological phenomenon involving a vague and random stimulus (often an image or sound) being perceived as significant. Common examples include seeing images of animals or faces in clouds, the man in the moon, and hearing hidden messages on records played in reverse. The word comes from the Greek para- ("beside", "with", or "alongside"—meaning, in this context, something faulty or wrong (as in paraphasia, disordered speech)) and eidolon ("image"; the diminutive of eidos ("image", "form", "shape")). Pareidolia is a type of apophenia

So what's wrong with that?

No, #219, while #113 was working with a low-ball estimate of Volcanic CO2 output, you were just flat wrong. Take your statement:

The Iceland volcano is “emitting between 150,000 and 300,000 tons of carbon dioxide per day" ... If you think all the planes in Europe generate that much CO2 a day you are nuts.

The airplane industry accounts for a disproportionate amount of CO2 output, because planes burn a LOT of fuel, and burning fuel creates a lot of CO2. Depending on the type of plane and any number of other physical factors, they can burn anywhere between 500 and 4,500 gallons of fuel every hour. According to Boeing's own website, a 747 burns through a gallon of fuel every second it's in the air. And, because fuel is combusted with oxygen in the air, the mass of the CO2 produced is far greater than the mass of the fuel burned--if you want to do out the full math, a 747 produces well over 400 lbs of CO2 every second it's in the air. Again, airplanes account for a disproportionate amount of CO2.

Now, 16,000 daily flights, out of Europe's 28,000 daily, were canceled--that's around 60%. According to the Annual European Community greenhouse gas 2009 inventory, European airplanes are tossing about 344,000 tons of CO2 into the air each day, cut that by 60% and we have a reduction of ~200,000 tons per day, while the volcano is again, putting around somewhere anywhere between 150,000 and 300,000 tons.

So, even if this volcano is doing the absolute most damage scientists estimate, it's still less harmful in terms of CO2 than a day of European airline traffic, which, while extensive, still only accounts for less than 3% of all the CO2 humans produce each day. By the end of the year, this volcano is less than a blip compared to the damage we'll have done to our planet.

#180 (kate) - Lightning results from an electric field where one region of the ash cloud has a different charge than another region or the ground. The difference in charge is created when smaller ash particles collide with larger ash particles as they are blown about by the heat from the volcano, just as happens with water droplets in water clouds. In an ash cloud, there is the even stronger effect of when two ash particles of different material collide, such as when you feel a spark after walking across a carpet.

"Stunning photos! Why does the ash cloud generate lightning?"
Its sparked when rockfragments, ash and ice particles colide in the cloud and produce static charge. :)

Beautiful (and scary) photos. I'm very glad I'm not living anywhere near an active volcano. I can;t imagine everything under inches of ash. Sometimes we have bad wildfires here that blanket the city in ash, but nothing like this!

The volcano isn't called Eyjafjallajokull, but Eyjafjallajökull. The difference between Ö and O is as great as between E and I, and in today's world where most fonts and web browsers can easily display Ös, there is no excuse for not spelling things like this correctly. It's as rude as if we Scandinavians were to consistently write about Jellostone National Park or the Grånd Cånyon.

I see people here are talking about CO2 from the volcano.

It´s good to have in mind that the aviation industry in europe (the aircrafts that is) puts out 344.000 tons of CO2 every day.
But the volcano in Eyjafjalla glacier puts out 15.000 tons of co2 per day.

Ok ???
So, dont forget to recycle ;)

The power of mother earth is beyond our comprehension, it is only when she strikes like the volcanic eruption, the tsunami in Thailand and in the past the volcanic eruption of the Krakatoa in Indonesia where an island sink into the ocean, only then we realised how fragile the earth is. We must learn to preserve nature and not destroy it because when we create an imbalance in the ecosystem of nature, catastrophic will be our lives and also for the future generations.

The photos are awesome. The comments of you misanthropes, not so, except as a demonstration of a twisted mentality that loves to talk about how you grind yourself down in the mud.

Yes, nature's big, oh, man is so small, this shows who's boss, blah blah.

Nature is brainless physical actions. Nature is not demonstrating anything. This is the world we live in. What it shows is not "what we are doing to the planet"--the planet is not a living, valuing being, but a thing that has no mind, no feelings, no fate, no ability to be damaged in any way that matters because it doesn't matter to the planet what happens to it. The planet doesn't hurt, feel, think, know, care, anger, rejoice, or anything.

All that matters is man--if man disappeared from the planet, "what we are doing to the planet" would stop, but it wouldn't matter, literally, because there would be no one for the rest of existence to matter to. (And yes, I include all non-human animals in that: They aren't human, they aren't rational consciousnesses, they are instinctual brutes who kill and get killed without compunction because they're simply nature and have no inherent value---only their value to man.)

Nature's not showing us anything here. This is simply what happened.

regarding comment 349, they were repairing the road that was intentionally cut to provide an outlet for the flood water. They were trying to (and succeeded in) saving the bridge that crosses the river that flooded.

I was at this spot on the same day and they were definitely working to bridge the gap, not cut the hole larger. The road is now officially opened again but it's still recommended that people stay out of the area unless they have a reason to be there.

It's funny to hear you all talk about the eruption in Eyjafjallajökull, I live in Iceland and my first eruption was in my hometown in Vestmannaeyjar, and it buried the whole town under lava and ash, but not a soul was killed in a town of 5000.
I feel privileged to experience Gods awesome wonders in the presence of humanity. We surly need to be reminded ones in a while, that we humans do not control nature, and with just a small cough from Gods green earth we stand in awe and humility by His power and mercy

thanks! it is awesome and beautiful!!! but also told us we must disturb the mother of nature too much. she now told us she is the one who in charge not us. she had enough of our bullshits, time for her to show her colors. well, we are so tiny. if as someone said here, this is the end of the world, what can we do? what we can do is sit back and watch.

by the way, recently so many strong earthquakes, so frequent, plus such a sleep volcano awake, all happen at once, and as i know they are all related. is there anything happen done underneath us? does any scientists tell us something about it?

Hi I live in Iceland and the Volcano eruption from Eyjafjardajokull has had enourmus damage for the farmers, nature and animals in this area as well as the Icelandic economy. The damage it has caused is devestating for Iceland. We only hope that the ash fall will end soon and we can begin to clean the area. We do not know if the farmers have to leave their farm or if the animals will survive. If the wind changes we will get ash in Reykjavik, we only hope for the best while the nature takes its course. We can only send the peolpe our best and help them in any way we can when this will be over!! HOPEFULLY SOON.

It is truly amazing, that no matter how powerful Man thinks he is, with his weapons, and technological achievements, Nature will, periodically, show him that he is puny and insignificant by comparison. I truly feel for the people who live in Iceland. When it is all over, I can imagine the clean-up process will take a very long time. I wish everyone well there. the photographs are truly beautiful, and the photographers have done what they can to capture it on film, although photographs will never do something like this justice. Thank you for sharing these with us...

this is really sad and horrible thing that is happening people are struggeling to save theyr animals and not everyone was saved. And there are bounch of birds that trying stay alive, for exsample my auncle was going to our farm and was going to try and save his horses, there is a photo of him here his name is Ingi, when he got there he couldn't see anything but one meter away from him because of ash.. he kindled a light in the house and bounch of birds were trying to get in, in to the light. I just wanted to tell u what u have to have in mind when u look at those pictures, but what I have said is just a small fraction of what is happening here in Iceland.

I live in southwestern Iceland and if it weren't for news sources and word of mouth, I wouldn't even know about the eruption. It's having no effect on us, as of yet. If the wind switches direction we'll be singing a different song, but I believe that for this time of year, the winds moving the cloud to mainland Europe are the prevailing winds. As you can see from the satellite image, the cloud is very close to the south coast and is being blown directly away from land.
There are very few Icelanders who live in the area most effected by this eruption. But the ones who live there will have a tougher time of it for years after this!

This volcano erupted was not so much although it did sent alot of ash over Europe, Now there could be a bigger erupted in short time Katla can be up to 10 times bigger then this, and the ash from her is much more toxic. When it erupted last time it did so much more damage then this 90% of animals died, Crops in France where destroyed and more, Plus they say that there could be a ash cloud over Europe for a year.

I am lucky as i live in the north part off Iceland or Akureyri to be specific and we did not get any ash over here but we did feel the drop in tempeture.

My family lived in Iceland as Baha'i pioneers in 1972 for two years and it is a breathtaking country...
We were there when the Island of Surtsey erupted and was born..
My heart goes out to all the people and animals who live near and around and to the world for where the ashes are spreading..
We visited the Westman Islands on a trip back in 1986 and the mountain where that volcano had erupted 15 years ealier was still hot and the steam was still gushing from the ashes..May houses were covered in ashes.and all you could see was the corner of the roof tops
Amazing photos and you should see the sunsets!!! Unbelievable!!

"So, even if this volcano is doing the absolute most damage scientists estimate, it's still less harmful in terms of CO2 than a day of European airline traffic, which, while extensive, still only accounts for less than 3% of all the CO2 humans produce each day. By the end of the year, this volcano is less than a blip compared to the damage we'll have done to our planet."

Now this is retarded. You have to pretend that CO2, a gas essential for all of us to be living right now, is doing "damage to our planet." Try again.

Nature's behavior
I believe, there's two options with regards to this volcanic experience. One idea is that mother nature in reacting to the human carelessness that got the glaciers thiner and oceans warmer. This would loosely explain the dust as nature's way to attempt blocking the heat from the sun. But there are loose ends on this idea.

On the other hand, which is where I stand, is that we are just experiencing nature evolving to another stage. This planet is having a life just like we are. I know that sounds like I support the idea that the world is going to end some day. Be assured, I don't believe in that. It's like a teenager suddenly realizing an opportunity to become a man.

This is what I think and I stand to be corrected.

Take Care

Volcanic eruption in South Iceland - NOTICE!!!

Last updated 20.04.2010 11:00 GMT
The behaviour of the eruption has changed as the amount of ash has reduced substantially. There is still considerable volcanic activity in Eyjafjallajökull which is being monitored closely. Icelandic civil protection authorities have the situation as regards public response fully under control and are providing citizens in adjacent areas to the volcano with necessary assistance. Ash has fallen in the vicinity of Eyjafjallajökull in southern Iceland but is not expected to reach the capital area or other parts of the country.

Business and public services are open
Day to day business in Iceland a has not been affected apart from the directly affected areas in the south. In other parts of the country, Icelanders’ daily life is proceeding quite normally. Domestic flights are running as usual and flights between Iceland and North America.

Travelers are safe and sound
Travelers currently in Iceland are safe and sound, and the appropriate parties are making every effort to make their stay as pleasant and comfortable as possible. All travelers stranded in Reykjavík due to the flight restrictions to Europe have been offered a complimentary Reykjavík Welcome Card which gives access to all the museums and exhibitions in Reykjavík, thermal pools, public transport and more. We would also like to draw attention to those videos with travelers comment on a prolonged stay in Iceland. A substantial number of visitors was able to depart Iceland on 18 and 19 April.

Information in English is updated daily at the website of Icelandic civil emergency authorities.

Really spectacular & scary. Can anyone emagine how much energy might have been emited by this volcano in the last few days. I guess it will be enough to give power to all houses in the world for an year...

Another query "Are prediction about 2012 true..." "Are these events an indicator of something." I mean I never heard or saw so many natural disasters happening so frequently... earth quake in Haiti, in China and now this volcano...

I am not one of those end of world beleivers. But cant shove them off just like that.

Yeah, when you see that on photo you cost it is beautifull but I don't think that the people who are living there think in that way... It's dump to say that you wish to be there because the people in there are not enjoying it, they don't see the beauty in it ... It's no doubt!!! They are in panic, they worry for so much things linked with this and they have no time to look at this in other way...

These photos remind me (on a much smaller scale) of the ash flow and ash drop from Mt. Saint Helens' in the State of Washington.....April 18th, 1980. Photos' #20 and #21.... look exactly like our sky in Spokane, WA did when the volcano blew her top! This dark black cloud just kept coming and coming and coming. T.V. and Radio sent out alerts to take cover, and stay inside. The clean up was weeks long. It was so thick, you couldn't drive in it. We wore face masks for weeks. A very scary time, one we'll never forget. I cannot imagine those living in Iceland, or in the direction the wind is taking these plumes of smoke and ash. Mother Nature is PISSED! Thats for sure.

Someone called Tedi said: Put some water on it, there is enough water on this island. The ASH is formed by the water that melts and runs from the glacier down to the heat below. That is why glacier volcanic eruption is so horrifying, it affects a much bigger area than just that one country.

As an Icelander living in the USA. Your pictures are beautiful, I was lucky to go with my Dad to see Hekla mountain erupt 1947 or 1948 it was awsome.
Thank you for the beautiful pictures.

This is not the first and won't be the last volcano to erupt in our country, we're used to this, where I live I detect earthquakes almost 4-5 times a week. The world is not coming to an end, people just think so because the ash from this volcano travels so far. If the ash would've only stayed over Iceland, people wouldn't have even thought about this eruption. I went to the area on friday to save our 3 horses that were stationed at a farm in Austur Landeyjar area, just few kilometers west of the falling ash, this for sure both breathtaking and terrifying for those who live there(we have friends that had to be evacuated) but the rest of Iceland is completely safe, so no one should worry about us....

I had been hoping someone would do a pictorial of this amazing display of Mother Nature.
Many thanks, Boston! This could not be better in any way. It's close enough to being there, imo.
Our measly collective effluence pales in comparison. I would love knowing though, what the depth is that sends out these mega- tons of ash, which I presume is granite, or similar?
A thousand thanks!

Impressive! But this has nothing on our volcano, Mount St. Helens, Washington State USA. May 18, 1980. We can still find ash deposits all over the state. We had several feet of the crap in our streets. I hope Iceland doesn't experience the same thing. We were able to find alot of uses for the ash too. It makes great pottery!

Let´s hope that the old vulcano mountain Hekla doesn´t explode too !
It´s fortunate that only very small part of Iceland, the area beneath the eruption, on the south side, is affected- too bad for air traffic though in europe!

Us ,who reside in Reykjavik area, are not affected in anyway, but our minds and hearts are with the farmers and the people that live close by the site.

But disasters are happening around the globe, earthquakes etc., with high number of people killed and injured, I extend my condolences to all those who suffer now from the wild and unpredictable elements of nature.

The whole earth is going through a series of geological events in the natural progression of our 'star dying'. The earth is cooling creating intense, immense earthquakes, storms, volcanic eruptions and the like.
This has been going on since the beginning of time. Nonetheless, it is awesome to be a witness to the powers of nature and evolution.

@John and others talking about global warming. This is actually helping the global warming by reducing carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, since airplanes release huge amount of carbon dioxide, much more than this volcano. Since most flights are grounded carbon dioxed in the air is about 200.000 tons less than when airspace was up.

Bilder die Geschichten erzählen - excellente beeindruckende Aufnahmen!

Posted by Angela Kaiser April 20, 10 12:25 PM

Die Vulkanbilder sind sehr beeindruckend, sehr informativ und teilweise sehr schön in ihrer Darstellung der ungezügelten schöpferischen Natur DANKE!
Die meiste Asche ist allerdings in Island und seiner engsten Umgebung wieder auf den Boden oder ins Wasser gefallen. Bei uns in Mitteleuropa ist nur ein verschwindend kleiner Teil angekommen. Anders als bei Saha- rastaub oder Feinstaub war hier nichts zu sehen oder zu spüren. Meines Erachtens hat der Prognose-Compter und / oder der Bediener mit fehler-hafter Simulation die Luftraumsperrung ganz Europas veranlasst. Ein Controllsystem war nicht eingeschaltet. Wirkliche Messungen wurden erst durch die Fluggesellschaften durchgeführt. Erst am Montag abend (gestern!) startete das erste Messflugzeug der Flugbehörden in München-Pfaffenhofen zu Messungen. Der deutsche Verkehrsminister Ramsauer erklärte, Sicherheit ginge über alles, deswegen sei das Flugverbot richtig. 100.00 gestrandeter Menschen waren ihm nicht wichtig genug. Die Ein- stellung des Frachtflugverkehrs führt zu Versorgungsengpässen (mit an- schliessenden Preissteigerungen) und dazu, dass die Industrie ihren Lieferverpflichtungen ins entferntere Ausland nicht erfüllen kann. Ernste Verluste und verlorene Aufträge, Verluste von Arbeitsplätzen drohen!
Ja, die Einstellung des gesamten Flugverkehrs durch die Sperrung der
Flughäfen war völlig überzogen; eine wirkliche und ernsthafte Gefahr lag
nicht vor, die Gefahr war herbeisimuliert worden.
Dann waren einmal die Flugplätze für 2 bis 3 Stunden freigegeben worden.
Das war absolut sinnlos, weil die Fluggesellschaften längere Zeit brauchen, um die gesamte Flugorganisation wieder in Gang zu bringen. (Piloten einteilen und an die Maschinen bringen, Techniker einteilen und zur Arbeit kommen lassen, Stewardessen einteilen und an die Arbeits-plätze in den Maschinen bringen, Passagiere abrufen, Ladungen der Frachtflieger einladen, die vorgeschriebenen Startchecks durchführen
usw. usw.) Diese überraschenden Kurtzeitfreigaben hatten wohl nur den
Zweck, spätere Schadensersatzansprüche abzuwehren. Im übrigen haben
die Fluggesellschaften selbst das grösste Interesse an der Flugsicherheit,
sie wollen weder Fluggäste noch Piloten oder Maschinen verlieren. Wenn Minister Ramsauer so tut, als würden die Fluggesellschaften lediglich aus Gewinnstreben das Ende des Chaos fordern, spritzt er Gift statt seinen Aufgaben nachzukommen.
Auf jeden Fall bin ich der Meinung, dass diese Angelegenheit vollkommen aus dem Ruder gelaufen ist. Ich bin kein Anhänger von Verschwörungs-theorien, aber ich halte es nicht für ausgeschlossen, dass eine Katastro- phen-Schutzübung (dafür haben die Engländer ja bekanntlich viel über) missglückt ist. Und wie beim Dominoeffekt fiel dan eine Flugsicherheits-behörde nach der anderen um, Motto: wenn die, dann wir auch. Vielleicht hat man auch eine bedrohliche Anschlagswarnung gehabt, den Flugver- kehr unterbrochen (und die Vulkanasche als Begründung missbraucht),
um die Anschläge und eine Panik zu verhindern.
Jetzt wird vorsichtig zurückgerudert. Regierungshaltung ist dabei, dass
keinesfalls dieses Versagen zugegeben wird. Dabei ist allein schon die Tatsache ein Skandal, dass man regierungsseitig in ganz Europa nicht auf Emissionsmessungen durch Flugzeuge eingestellt war und erst ein (!) Messflugzeug dafür aufgerüstet werden musste. Staub in der Luft ist doch nichts neues! Feinstaubmessungen in allen deutschen Grosstadten sind Routine, Saharawinde mit Staub bis in grosse Höhen treten immer wieder auf, genauso solche Winde bei allen Wüsten dieser Welt, (Saudi-Arabien, Gobi, Atakama, und und und, neulich erst war dichter roter Staub in Australien eine deutliche Warnung!
Entweder es liegt ein unglaubliches Versagen oder eine Täuschung der Menschen vor. Die Behörden schlafen und lügen uns an.
DOCH DIE VULKANBILDER SIND GROSSARTIG !

Beste Grüsse an alle Freunde

Pretty sure picture 8 is Skogafoss waterfall. It is an amazing place. My wife and I got drenched there in 2005 when we got too close and the wind shifted. Just to the east is Vic which is a great little town that processes a lot of the famous Icelandic wool. They have some of the most amazing black sand beaches there. If the place was 2000 miles south it would be one of the greatest beaches in the world. Iceland is an amazing place to visit if you ever get the chance.

Very, very beautiful photos, thank you. We hope that the people in Iceland do not suffer to much from the ash. Some people enjoy chemtrail free skies these days in some European countries. Some people are really annoyed by the vulcano, which we find odd. Iceland has in general a huge impact on Europe these days, financially etc.
All prayers go to the people and animals on this wonderful Island.

Ref 767 marylin,
> 'star dying'.
Our star isn't dying, it's probably in its forties in human terms.

> The earth is cooling
No it isn't, the Earth's internal termperature is maintained via radioactivity (give or take a bit and much simplified)

> creating intense, immense earthquakes, storms, volcanic eruptions and the like.
In the 19th century people kinda thought mountains were the puckers and wrinkes as the earth cooled and shrank. Except there was no evidence of it cooling in geological timescales. Then came the theory of continental drift which explains mountains in terms of continents bashing into one another (Himalayas) or subduction zones (Rockies, Andes) or separation zones between plates (taking us back to Iceland)

Sorry to be a pedant.

I would think that having more land added to one's country without the need for messy conquest would be a blessing and not a curse. Volcanism is a powerful natural force, no question about that, and the model offered by plate tectonic theory seems a sound explanation. But for the devout, who would see the work of an almighty hand in all things, perhaps it might credibly be glossed as well in this instance as a divine reward for the Icelanders' having organized a democratic assembly (the Althing) a millennium ago, back when "conflict resolution" for virtually everyone else in the world was defined as bashing heads. (Njal's Saga provides an excellent picture of Iceland just at the point of transition between these two approaches.)

Iceland is a wonderful place with fantastic people and a real community spirit. I wish I could help out somehow. Everyone is aware the volcanoes can and will cause trouble, but that does not mean to say it's not just as devastating when they do. All we have to worry about here in the UK is travel disruption.

It's like Mother Nature says, "Quit whining about global warming, you piss ants. Cap and trade this!" Don't know if it is true, but I heard that these eruptions have put out more of the so-called greenhouse gases than all of mankind in entire recorded history. They ought to take Al Gore and drop him into that cinder cone. That way, he won't be travelling around trying to scam us out of our money and our freedom.

I imagine that the lightning results from static electricity -- generated by ripping the glass fragments, rocks and other debris out of the mouth of the volcano. It's analogous to the sparks that fly when a cat's fur is rubbed.

> Can anyone explain what causes the lightning which appears with the eruption?

Just guessing here but.. As the air is full of particles of dust, there's probably an intermittent electrical connection to the ground - so this effectively raises the ground into the air, for some of the time - meaning that it's much more likely for lightening to strike.

Disclaimer: I'm just guessing...

The lightnings are indeed interesting. Apparently, they are produced due to the fact that the ashes are electrically charged. When they are expelled, a voltage between the ashes and ground is created, and a discharge can be produced: it is a lightning.
These pictures are really amazing. Moreover, I did not know this ligntning phenomenon.

Posted by Vincent April 20, 10 03:22 PM

The ash particles create static electricity as millions and billions of the tiny particles bounce against each other. This energy builds until finally it can discharge, creating these massive bolts of lightning.

Why you see lightning in an eruption of a volcano.
When Mount St. Helens erupted in 1980 we had lots of lightning in Ellensburg Washington from the ash fall. There is a lot of static buildup from the particle movement in the air, like rubbing your feet across a carpet on a dry day. The static buildup reaches a point that it can jump to place of a different potential or level and you get a spark and a shock. In an eruption just like in a thunder cloud you get lightning.

The pictures taken were a masterpiece especially the last four.. Everybody can see the wilderness of mother nature .. It seems as if mother nature is angry with man kind & its nature disturbing activities. Please stop polluting this beautiful earth. Consider the whole earth as your home by less polluting & more recyclying.

The remarkable photo gallery of Iceland's erupting volcano has been captioned as, "the work of "God". More accurately would be the 'Ongoing Reformation of the Universe." But whatever label enables us to accept the reality of the astounding effects of universal action, is inevitably, the closest, mankind will ever get to acknowledging the miracle of the 'empty' space we are a part of.

Your photo's inspired me to examine and write a blog post about the liklyhood of natural disasters in Carlsbad CA. We definately have our potential issues with tsunamis and earthquakes. Good references there to maps and reports. Check it out at Potential Natural Disasters in Carlsbad, CA

Thanks for the inspiration. Jack

its awful to see such anger in nature... where ever you see natural desasters are hitting in form of earthquakes, tornados, flooding and now this. My heart goes out to people in Iceland. their lives will be effected for long time just like in 1783. hopefully with technology and World's unity, damages will be controlled and minimized. Nature has been abused in many ways and its now retaliating.

Les politiques vont-ils comprendre à la lumière de cet évènement, somme toute naturel, que leur action sur la nature est tragiquement ridicule et que jamais ils ne pourront infléchir le cours de la vie sur notre misérable planète qui n' est qu'infiniment petite dans l'univers? En réalité ils veulent, en effrayant les populations sur un réchauffement climatique cyclique, relancer l'activité économique et trouver de nouveaux créneaux industriels sur tout ce qui est écolo. Mais qu'ils puissent penser pouvoir ralentir le cours de l'évolution du monde, quelle folie!

Although not a good thing to be going through, those pictures were absolutely beautiful in their own way too. The lightning shots are awesome, but the other ones showing the Icelandic people trying to adapt to the situation were great too see too.
Initially the news reports over here were of "oh no, we can't fly in Europe now" type of sensationalism, now we can see why. Who cares about air travel. Mother Nature is giving a smack down.

Comment # 959: It is not true that volcanoes spew out more greenhouse gases than does human civilization. NASA studied this issue and found that we humans are releasing more than 100 times more CO2 into the atmosphere in an average year than volcanoes. It is a good idea to check your facts before repeating misinformation.

My heart goes to the farmers in southern Iceland. It is strange to watch these pictures and see absolutely no signs of the ash here in Reykjavik! The air here is completely free of the ash because of the wind direction (as seen on picture 30) so our international airport has been able to continue flights to America for example while everything is chaotic in Europe!

(Just for your information no one has died or been injured because of this here in Iceland as seems to be common belief, the real tragedy is in Haiti, Chile and China)

So, now I wonder how the leaders of the World will use this, yet another natural happening, in order to try and scare us to death and to milk us out of our last blood earned dollar. They will think of something.

Selfishly, I hadn't even thought about the people in Iceland and the devastating effect it is having on them. We must be grateful it is only our travel affected.
My thoughts are now with the Icelanders, their animals and the flora and fauna there.

What fantastic photographs! I've always wanted to go to Iceland to see the beautiful geology. Very few other places afford someone the opportunity to see such dynamic changes in the earth. I truly regret not being there for the eruption, but thanks to the marvels of the Internet I can get the next best thing: nearly instantaneous photographs! W00T!

On Montserrat, we have lived with this beast's third cousin [once removed by force] since ... 1995. It has not disrupted as much air travel because of the winds and geography; yet the impact on the island of Montserrat has been incalculable, and in every imaginable - and un-imaginable - way possible.
For one thing, it tends to pull-together people, and send those who cannot cope packing. Darwinian; maybe? Real, yes. Very real.

To the person who heard that the greenhouse gases from Eyjafjallajokull were more than all the greenhouse gases emitted by mankind in history:

As many have said, MAGNIFICENT PHOTOS, but we must feel incredible sorrow for the men & women trying to live thru this type of holocaust, much less trying to keep their animals safe, somehow feeding & watering them, trying to spare them from the volcanic ash & rock. . . Meanwhile it's turning their entire land into a horrific wasteland that will probably be unusable for many years, perhaps for generations.

I read that the volcanic ash's effect is it might create a cooling trend. If so, it seems like Nature's response to the Global Warming effect we're creating. If the warming isn't slowed and stopped, there will be far more difficult and inconvenient days ahead, everywhere. And there will be no quick fixes. Time is running out on a humanity that must learn to live with Nature, not on top of it.

Hi,
Fine photos.

This is just a little demo of what will happen when Mount Katla, the old mother of all volcanos starts her prosess. It will happen within a year. according to sientists.
Then airplains will be grounded for some months.

Just relax. We are OK. Do not start to send us tents...and water in cans.

The ash is just falling on little area near the volcano. This is just a little turist eruption.

But I do feel very sorry for the travelers who are running out of money trying to wait to resume travel, and for the Icelanders who are seeing the ashfall ruin their land for a long time.
Based on what was done after the 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens, I've urged that Icelanders collect lots of this ash and put it in soap, etc.

I live two hours away from this eruption, and my heart breaks to see all that land covered with ash, that area of the country is one of the most beautiful in Iceland, (think Lord of the rings and you´ll get the idea) but now it is showing us a terrifying, humbling power that is affecting the world. Perhaps this will be a lesson for us all to stand as one inn the sea of humanity. For indeed when all is said and done, we are but temporary residents on a very beautiful powerful planet. Our petty behaviour towards one and other is of no importance to Mother nature.

I drove these roads last summer, and all that is left to say is God have mercy on us. And thank you for reminding us that we as a world are indeed one.

Thank you for these fantastic pictures.
God bless you all and keep you.

(Just to wake us up to realize how insignificant we are in comparison with nature, we should be humble and start making peace with nature i.e:
Start planting trees instead of bricks
end air and water pollution
love all living creatures
and stop producing so much waste!)

Give me a break........ Taking care of each other is one thing.... but nature is here to over come and in the end there will be nothing. The earth will be dead to all and no one can stop that. Eat, Drink and be Merry for tomorrow will not come one day. I love all living things, some of them with gravy.

The photos are awe-inspiring! Mother Nature is the boss - we all need to remember that. I agree with you Jackson (post 959). I'm sure the planet is warming, but it could be a natural phenomenon. There have always been warm ages and ice ages, and maybe we're now in a time of warming. I'm sure eruptions like this don't help. Al Gore and a lot of people like him want us to part with more of our money in the belief that global warming is our fault. Do you think it would help if we can get all the cows to stop farting?

be years until they will be able to get this cleaned up. My heart goes out
to the farmers. I don't see anything beautiful about it......

Get real, you who think Mother Nature is getting revenge on Iceland & the rest of us for abusing nature. There were volcanoes long before we even had the ability to pollute or cause so-called global warming. What about that? Who was Mother Nature getting revenge on back then? There is no Mother Nature in the first place. God created the earth & everything in it. He is also in control of everything and everyone. If He wants to let that or any other volcano erupt, there's not a thing you can do about it, now is there? God loves all of us & He wants us to be with Him for eternity. He will use whatever He can to turn people back to Him before it's too late. Those pictures are awesome, by the way.

Lightning results when opposite electrical charges build up and the voltage between these opposite charges is sufficient to break down the dielectric of the air or medium between the charges. Then you get the static discharge or lightning. The static discharge you feel when you walk across a rug and touch a door knob is a miniature lightning bolt. It is the same principle.

The pictures are AWESOME and they make me homesick. I guess in a weird way, huh? (I've been using pictures sent from my relatives in Iceland on my desktop.) I was born in Iceland (live in Washington State); I'm 1/2 Icelandic. I still have relatives there that I've seen only once since I was 19. They're safe but worried about the ash, of course. My aunt is only about 20 miles away from the volcano. My older brother was actually in Iceland at the time of an eruption years ago. As the sentiment seems to be, beautiful yet sad!

Just when Man thinks he knows it all, God remindes us we are still in a learning mode. We too were in Washington when Mt. St. Helens spewed her ash. That ash is funny stuff...mentally you think it's going to melt, like snow...but it doesn't. Some wanted to gather it to use to make pottery. We found that emergency vehicles such as ambulances, fire trucks and police couldn't function for long...and grocery stores were getting empty because trucks couldn't make it in. These photos are amazing. Thank you!

still not sure about this one.. a few options here (great pics tho!)


a) natural volcano (releasing far more carbon dioxide that we ever will, this will increase plant growth and is a natural occurance) hopefully Al gore can tax it and save us all. yay for unjust taxes to fund world government - yay

b) new world govt / banking cartels unleashing HAARP on iceland for not paying back their illegal loans - good on ice land for standing up to them!

c) the new world govt messed up an earthquake and did a volcano instead, oops - these fools need to learn how to use it properly if that want to continue to scare and tax us. Look out greece you are next.... pompey is not too far away...

d) Gotta be farting and burping cows really, think about it arn't they the cause of global warming, closely followed by not paying taxes?

e) none of the above (minus one, but not including the one just below)

f) all of the above plus four.

g) Its nothing compared to what yellowstone will do when it blows, maybe they are practicing flying near ash before this happens in America.

h) noagendashow (become a night and get lots of hookas and blow)

"Mother nature is pissed off" and "a message from God to man"? It's a volcano! A rupture in the planet's crust that allows hot magma and gases to escape, usually where tectonic plates are diverging or converging. It's not a message or an angry god. It would have happened regardless of our spiritual beliefs or our abuse of the planet.

I was not at the volcano location, but I did have a personal ;view of the general region.

Note that you will not see qny smoke stack as they use thrermal heat for dwellings. All structures are build of concrete to withstand winds of up to 125 mile per hour.

Nature is not angry with anyone. It operates according to its laws. It created humans and other creatures in vcertain environments and if some some become victims of those laws, we can only sympathize. God as the Western world understands it, is just man's creation.

The ash cloud could cause global cooling, ironically. The 2500-degree heat from the volcano itself is a small blip compared to the extent of the cloud. If the dust stays aloft long enough, sunlight will be reflected off of it, resulting in surface cooling. The same thing happened in the late 1800's when Krakatoa (sp?) blew up in Indonesia. This could lead to a "summer that never was" in Europe. I am going to predict that snow falls in England and northern Europe in June and July.

Take that, Gore! Global warming, my a$$.

What will happen to all the progress made for reducing GHG gases. In a moment we are pulled back in our journey by 5 years.

Moreover the climatic cycle may shift in any direction. It can form clouds over the Icelands skies and may not let sunlight enter, or if the GHG concentration increases, the heat will be entrapped and overall it will become an 'entropy island'.

Sadly, all these phographs are not beautiful anymore for us, who are living on the tipping point. They were indeed beautiful, had it been happened 50 years back. Any more GHG uncurbed emission and we will witness ir-reversible climate changes.(refer NASA site)

Back to normal. My heart breaks for the people of Iceland and also for all the animal life on the island.

Great pictures:) I wish I had talent like that.
I really feel for the farmers and their animals here in Iceland. I hope the animals won't be poisoned from the ash. At least the farmers can wear masks to prevent that from happening to themselves.
We haven't seen any ash here in Reykjavik yet but we probably will tomorrow or the next day. This eruption has probably made more trouble for people in Europe than people here in Iceland, but thank you all for your concern;) It's good to know that people around the world still care for each other:)
Although the earth is as small as she is, she is incredibly powerful. Just look at everything she has given us.

Take care ya'll!!


P.s. here's a link to a live webcam where you can see the eruption: http://eldgos.mila.is/eyjafjallajokull-fra-thorolfsfelli/
(most of the time you can't see anything because it's too cloudy, but when the sky is "clear" it looks really amazing. Also during the nighttime when you can really see the fire and lava spewing out of the glacier..)

Love the lightning photos.

BTW: the volcano threw out 50 times less CO2 and other emissions per day than the EU air traffic that it stopped. So a long as the volcano stops at least 2% of the EU daily air traffic, it actually reduces the amount of daily CO2 emissions. In addition the ash clouds reflect light into space giving an additional cooling effect.

Very intersting! The News media should cover the local situation better! Yesterday a news reporter from Iceland stated that Iceland had no problems at all and did not feel the effect of the vulcanic eruption - clearly she must have focused or air traffic in the airport and forgotten all others.
The News media really need to shape up and cover stories more fully and in dept! Thanks for sharing these truely illustrative pictures of the seriousness of the situation to animals, human beings, and the immidiate environment - hope there will be a global collection effort to help the farmers out!

I thought Kilauea Iki and Halemaumau on Big Island Hawaii were scary. These photo's are nature's art in the making and I wonder if planet earth will add land as a result of all this spewing and lava power to the Iceland.
the timy plane in one of the shots as well as the lady standing infront of the water fall delivered powerful message. Ever corporate airlines and humans desperate to get to work do not dare mess with Mother Nature. Kudo's to the photographers and the collaborative efforts to bring this display to all of us who nest in the comfort of the Western World

It has always been a longing in my heart to visit my heritage in Iceland. The power of our mighty God is evident in these photos and I pray that God will protect this amazing land and I will be able to make that visit. To all living close to this wonder of nature, I pray God's protection and peace. It is true...we are so small and helpless.

Fantastic pictures !!!, cada vez que vemos a la naturaleza explosionar de una manera diferente, nos recuerda que antes de la extinción total de la tierra o del sistema solar, pueden nacer y desaparecer bastantes civilizaciones en la misma tierra, y que nuestro sistema solar tan solo es un punto alejado en un brazo de la Via Lactea. Fantástico !, lastima no nos den mas tiempo para poder verlo...!

Thank you. My memories erupted with volcano related experiences.
1964, Irazu in Costa Rica erupted as my three Aspen ski pals and I hiked up the cone on the oposite side of where the wind carried the plume.
1998 Antarctica swimming in the Southern Sea heated by an underwater volcano eruption.
During the middle ages the eruption of a volcano blocked the sun, causing our globe's temps to drop which in turn brought life to fleas that sponsored the bubonic plaque. Read William Rosen's "Justinian's Flea."

Very nice photography!

The lightning - arc discharge of electric potentials between the upper atmosphere and the volcano. I guess that many haven't seen a volcanic eruption (movies don't count), it is a usual spectacle.

The finer particulates may stay in the atmosphere for months and would bring a cooling effect, so some hail/snow even in summer is likely in the atlantic seaboard or even inland.

This volcano shows there is no end to the great power of inner earth and if one day 6-7 of these eruptions happen together across the world for a period of one month, it will have enormous impact in our lives. The skies will be covered for 2months of darkness, the temp will drop below zero, and the whole world will come to stand still. Remember how dinassors died????

Mi solidaridad con el Pueblo de Islandia...ésta situación del volcán me hace recordar que: "Todas las cosas, por un poder inmortal, cercano o lejano, ocultamente, tan unidas están que es imposible tocar una flor sin que se estremezca una estrella" (no recuerdo el autor).
...nuestro mundo se transforma segundo a segundo, minuto a minuto, hora a hora, día a día, semana a semana, mes a mes, año a año, ... y estamos distraidos en otras cosas, no importantes, haciendo y aspirando otras cosas, como si no viviéramos en el mundo en que vivimos, en nuestro planeta Tierra. ...si no cambiamos ahora nosotros los "seres humanos" nuestro planeta Tierra lo hará de forma catastrófica por nosotros.

The comments made by number 1360 are RIDICULOUS, HEARTLESS and UNTRUE. Read your New King James Bible the very back in "Revelation" and also read scriptures that say, Faith without good works is dead. We are primarily on this earth to take care of ALL of mankind and if you were the one suffering in one of YOUR so called misguided guilt countries YOU would sing a to a differant tune. Be a man and a Christian and help others. By the way the photos are AWESOME! but this is not the way the world AS WE KNOW it will end so have no fear.

" THE DRY SALVAGES
(No. 3 of 'Four Quartets')
T.S. Eliot
I do not know much about gods; but I think that the river
Is a strong brown god—sullen, untamed and intractable,
Patient to some degree, at first recognised as a frontier;
Useful, untrustworthy, as a conveyor of commerce;
Then only a problem confronting the builder of bridges.
The problem once solved, the brown god is almost forgotten
By the dwellers in cities—ever, however, implacable.
Keeping his seasons and rages, destroyer, reminder
Of what men choose to forget. Unhonoured, unpropitiated
By worshippers of the machine, but waiting, watching and waiting.

Great photos. Is this Gaia's revenge or Gaia coming to the rescue? Gaia's revenge would be that we have done irreversible damage and that the biosphere can no longer be counted upon to protect us. The rescue would signal that Gaia is alive and well and responding to global warming with a barrier of ash - tough love! Personally I think its divine retribution for refusing to cough up the UK banking compensation.

Magnifiques photos, mais au-delà de la désolation causée sur certaines terres de cette île volcanique qu'est l'Islande, ne croyez pas que l'Europe entière est oppressée sous une couche de nées dues à l'éruption : ce n'est pas ou que très peu visible, peut-être seulement l'impression d'une brume non opaque en regardant l'horizon lointain... La photo prise sur le lac Léman est celle d'un couchant qui n'est pas vraiment significative par rapport à l'éruption dont il est question. Si c'était la nuée, nous l'aurions vu passer, habitant du côté de Belfort (N-E de la France), sur son passage...

I am a Brit living in Greece and I am shocked by what I have seen.
Instead of feeling sorry for our misgivings, we as Greeks, should try to be productive and find ways to work for our bread in our usual proud manner , helping these people to live a normal life by offering them our hospitality until they can safely return to their land.
The Greeks are amazing people and that is what they do best. We also have the facilities from the Olympic Games . I just feel that we can help by ensuring their children's future, their livelihood and even house their livestock until they get the all clear. They are in my prayers.

Please do not try to pronounce Eyjafjallajökull. I think that in most people will get in to trouble if they start doing so. From my own experience with pronouncing some english names, many came out wrong.
Eyjafjallajökull is not so bad ( That is to say in Icelandic) here are some others: Snæfellsjökull, Drangajökull, Tungnafellsjökull, Þórisjökull, Eiríksjökull, Skeiðarárjökull. We have many more. But the important thing is, no lives have been lost directly related to the eruption and property loss is not much. The life and work of Icelandic people go on without much disruption.

Thankyou Boston Post. These images are incredible. I feel so frustrated that there seems to be more sympathy for people who are stuck in other countries rather than those people in Iceland, who have to cope and deal with this unbelievable episode of Mother Nature's tendencies. I've not heard one person share any empathy or sympathy for the Icelandic. Disgraceful.

The people who took these pictures are on a totally different level. Crazed? Brave? Genius? Inventive? All of the above.

When this thing does more damage to carbon footprints, CO2 in the atmosphere, along with sulphur etc, and reflection of sunlight? In 5 days, this volcano has really stitched up the Gore theorists.

We've evolved alongside volcanoes for nearly a billion years. Compared to the damage we've done to the environment just in the last year this is a minor event. The photos are fantastic and if anything teach us that nature is amazing and we'll never overpower it. That's the biggest lesson to be learned from this.

We'll all have to get used to living without air travel once the oil runs out (there's no suitable substitute for kerosene either now or in the foreseeable future) so consider this a rehearsal. Who needs planes anyway?

Thanks, perfectly shooted pictures at the right time. And we are able to see it from another part of the World.
I hope People in Iceland (surrounding area of the Eyjafjallajokull volcano) would be able to have their normal life pretty soon.
How long will it take the lands (if are damaged by volcanic eruption) to turn into suitable land for vegetation growth? Will there be any land use changes due to this eruption? What will be its effect on Global warming and its consequences?

Lets think about CARRYING capacity of our MOTHER EARTH !

Two thoughts on the eruption
The insurance companies say this is an act of God!
If God wanted to bring human life to a stand still he has only to fire up 5 of his volcanoes to do it
By the way he has thousands
second thought
Judging by how hard and expensive it is to get anywhere on this planet with out cheap air travel there is no way we are going to give it up to keep the green lobby happy

To look at the photos the word awesome takes on a whole new meaning. The force is unbelievable. How hard life must be for the local people and how far reaching the effects are. Our sympathy for the citizens and stock in Iceland. The photos are hard to believe - though we know they are reality - it is just that in Australia this does not happen. Our thought for all those Internationally effected by the forces nature has unleashed. Makes mankind and our efforts sort of insignificant.

In recent times people have suffered from Tsunamis, floods, hurricanes, earthquakes and volcanic eruptions......is God or Mother Nature warning us to stop destroying 'our' planet? With deforestation, damming of great rivers and the spraying of chemicals on the flora, we are changing the planet we have been fortunate to inherit. Lets leave it to the powers that created it, we could never improve on that!
Terribly sad for those affected by this natural act.

Hi
Great pictures!
I live in Reykjavik, Iceland, which is about 100 km west from the volcano. Sadly most of the world think that all Iceland is affected from the eruption but the truth is that the eruption is affecting small part of the country, and ashfall is limited to that area.
Lot of people think it is dangerous to travel to Iceland due to this volcano eruption but it is far from it, in most places in Iceland live goes on like nothing has happened, I miss that part of the story in the world press.

Hell from Iceland!

My name is Bergur Isleifsson and I am in Reykjavik. I want to thank all of you who comment here and are sending us Icelanders your best wishes.

I can assure you that the situation here is not as terrible as some people seem to think. This eruption is only affecting a very tiny part of the country and the population, no one has been hurt and the only damage is to a few farms, situated to the south of the volcano.

Thank you all for your concern.

I wonder what the carbon footprint of this volcanic eruption is? Oh no, global warming to the 100th power. How will we survive? Hmmm....On the other hand, maybe the atmosphereic dust from it is causing global cooling. What a quandry for the earth day crowd. What will they warn us of? Ohhhhh, I'm scared. Do I get SPF 100 suntan lotion or a thick winter jacket. Help me to decide.

Fortunately there is no major impact on the residents of iceland due to the volcano being away from any highly populated areas and the ash being blown straight off to sea and across towards mainland europe. I'm sure it's proved a nuisance to those living in close proximity due to the flooding etc.

Dear Shirley of USA,

No, it did not make me think of the Book of Revelation, which is the ramblings of a mentally disturbed person about some invisible sky-fairy at a time when ignorance and superstition ruled the world.

It made me think of the grandeur of nature; the skill of the photographer; the way mankind deals with these things and how advanced communication are available to many, though not all.

What a wonderful thing it would be to witness it first hand.
Knowing my luck, travelling from Thorshavn to Iceland, the eruption would stop twelve hours before my arrival.
These pictures are absolutely awesome, and also huge fun.
I've often read and written about the eruption of Laki in 1783.
One really good eruption would solve all the problems about global warming!

The pronounciation is somewhere close to Aya-fyaddla-jurkuddle. Easypeasy.
The volcano is situated close to the middle of the south coast of the island. It is almost surrounded by farmland, but the population is sparse. 2-3 small villages are in the vicinity, and a town of ca. 6000 people ca. 80 cm to the west. The Reykjavik metropolitan area where more than half of all Icelanders live is approx. 140 km away. No ash has as yet fallen in that area.

among the best photos i have ever seen, with the keen eyes of the guest.
nature here is both harsh and beautiful and deadly at times.
Over 200 volcanoes have eurupted since people settled here around 800.
The most deadly killed 75% of the livestock and 25% of the population 230 years ago, caused a global cooling and could happen again without warning.
Here in Reykjavik we are at safe distance from the biggest volcanes, Katla
Askja and Hekla, however some smaller and still active crates are in our backyard, only 20-30 km away from the Capital.
The only questions about volcanos here in Iceland is not whether, but When....

As beautiful as the pictures are, it's not a good thing. The planet is trying to tell us something. With all the earthquakes, winter and rain storms, and now a powerful volcanic eruption (all in just the last few months), we need to listen up and makes some changes.

Aramgeddon? NOT!
Just the earth taking care of itself.
Like a flush and fill of your car.
Remember, the only global warming is the earth going through its natural cycles of heating and cooling to eliminate noxious annoyances.
The Co2 in the atmosphere isn't from cow flatuance, it is from to many people exhaling on this planet.
Go back 75 years and we had 2/3 less people on this planet.

First of all, these are some top rate pictures, cleanly taken and great quality, very poignant.
Second of all... people are commenting how this is all our fault, god/mother nature is mad at us, global warming is getting worse, etc etc.
To the people who blame "god" or "mother nature":
Grow up...
And Global Warming? Yes, it is getting worse... but GLOBAL WARMING DOES NOT CAUSE VOLCANOES!!
Tsunamis, tornadoes, mudslides, hurricanes and other tropical storms, although they are natural occurances, can be caused or exerbated by global warming. Earthquakes and volcanoes?
Not so much...
If anyone remembers from science class, earthquakes and volcanoes are caused by changes in the Earth's techtonic plates: Earthquakes are caused by friction and pressure build-up between plates releasing and volcanoes are caused by incredible pressure and heat from magma under the Earth's crust.

Just a reminder to THINK before you post.

Have you ever wondered what the volcanic eruptions carbon footprint is? I bet it palls to what man's less that 1% contribution is. Mt, St. Helen, a pansy when it comes to carbon release.

Absolutely beyond comprehension. The might of nature is beyond our ken.
The photography, and the photographer are surely prize-winning. I cannot stop looking at the photos of a mighty volcano spewing its molten rocks into the sky and I can hear the crackle of the lightning also! I hope that the rich countries will come to the aid of the Icelanders also.

Makes me think of how fragile our existence is on this planet. This is what must have happened to cause the dinosaurs to become extinct. It's a wake up call. Hope it's not too late for humans to do something about the damage already inflicted on Mother Earth. If we are not careful, in a hundred thousand years the species alive then will talk, reflect and study the human species who inhabited earth and became extinct in the 21th millenium.

The pictures are stunning. So are the many comments in languages other than English, only a few of which I understand. But I venture to say that all share the same feeling of awe, of compassion, of despair at the damage we are wreaking as a species on this glorious, powerful planet we so little understand.

Que tous, nous nous sentions solidaires devant la beauté et la fragilité de notre seule demeure, notre Terre mère.

This are just pictures. You should see it in live thats amazing, I can´t descripe, it is so beautiful and powerful. Everyone should see it in live.
And it is not dangerous to come here to Iceland. We never take any risks about volcanos, we respect them. So come and see Eyjafjallajökull in live.

Fantastic fotos that makes you enter in another world. The strenght of Nature and the relative power of man. The population of Europe grothw like other parts of the planet Earth, the globalization, makes natural phenomena being a catastrophe.
A lesson of our Planet and the dynamic relation nature-man. Thanks for this marvellous reportage.

Absolutely amazing pictures. The power of nature is awsome and it can demonstrate how little control of nature we have. This is how some species died off.

What a beautiful pictoral testament of what God and Mother Nature are capable of doing. My heart goes out to all Man and Beast in the area, especially the poor animals who are incapable of protecting themselves from the horrendous ash fall out. Periodically we are reminded of how insignificant we are in the great scheme of things, This is one of those times.

Very dramatic and cool - New rocks and maybe new chrsytals are being made. I especially liked the lava and lightening shot and my mom liked the rainbow-waterfall shot. My younger brother's favorite was lava spewing at nighttime and my sister liked the wild horses. Thanks to everyone who contributed.

There are no words to really describe this catastrorphe! We have no idea what these people and their animals are going through. Didn't know that a volcano could wreak this kind of havoc.

Amazing pictures but sympathy to the icelandic people, just shows us how punitive the human species are when compared to the force of nature.
An act of nature on this magnitude seems to be the only way to get mankinds attention - so is this not yet another reminder to get the world to stop and think what they are doing to our eco sytems whilst we still have a planet to call earth!
Extinction is for a long long time!
