Eyjafjallajokull

Volcanic-ash-rises-from-E-001

Nope, its not English. That is in fact the full proper name for the nice volcano that erupted in Iceland.

Since the eruption, airports in Ireland and the UK and Europe have been closed due to ash clouds.  Dublin airport which is less than 5 km from here, so with the airport closed, it seems eerily quiet. Dublin Airport reopened today but the majority of mainland Europe is closed so the only flights leaving or arriving are from the USA.

I found this other  photograph on Flickr and thought it too good not to share.. Beautiful photograph, definitely once in a lifetime. Direct Link Here: (Flickr wouldn’t let me embed it)

Also thanks to Brian McColl for this webcam link to the volcano. Don’t forget it gets black at night.
