    It's fascinating! I keep looking at photos from the volcanic outbreak, and it is beautiful in all it's destructivity. It's also scary. Nature's really something else.

    I agree with you MaryAnn, that really is a very powerful picture.:eek: Beautiful and frightening at the same time. Reminds me of Mt. Doom from "Lord of the Rings." That has to be one of the, if not THE most amazing picture of a volcano I have ever seen.

    AWESOME picture! Reminds me of the pockets clouds from Mt. St. Helens in 1980 and the hundreds of lightning bolts jumping from cloud to cloud before the ash started falling.

    Not for my part, but lots of air traffic passengers have been delayed all over Europe. We got some ash with the rain and probably the snow too, but nothing we notice much. Iceland is far away, really.

    Awesome photo!! You can see the raw energy with in it.

    It is amazing how an very minor volcano can cause massive chaos all over the world. Lets hope the big one Katla does not wake up! Now that would be very bad for all.

    I don't think we got any fall out here on the east coast of Norway. We had hail one day, but then that would be normal here in April to see that. So wether it was normal, or from the volcano,,who knows. It is colder than it has been, but its very sunny here.
