Images of Eyjafjallajökull

April 21, 2010

They are at this link.

These pictures are so terrifyingly beautiful; they have me in awe.  You should take a look.  My favorite is the first.  It looks like the Crack of Doom in Mordor.

The images are from “The Big Picture”, and are mostly Reuters, Getty, and AP pics.

    You are so right, Stephen. I showed a collection similar to this to my class of 4th graders. They were stunned at the power of a volcanic eruption. It’s one thing to talk about Vesuvius. It’s a whole ‘nother matter to see this Icelandic volcano erupting.

      Indeed it is. Or, put it another way: it’s one thing to watch and enjoy the movie “Dante’s Peak”, and still another to watch this volcano. It really makes you respect the raw power of nature.
