Anyone remember that volcano eruption of 2010 that dumped ash all over Europe and caused havoc with air travel? Yeah, well, the Icelandic volcano Eyjafjallajokull was responsible for that whole mess. It started erupting on March 20, 2010 with a second eruption on April 12, 2010. After that the sky was the limit for Eyjafjallajokull to screw with airlines and passengers.
The following photograph is of ash and lightening above the Eyjafjallajokull volcano; let me know if it looks as damn amazing as I think it does:
Of course I wouldn’t want to be at that place at the time this was happening (or any other time, for that matter), but I can enjoy the beauty from the safety of my home, right?
