volcano clouds

here is a surreal photo of volcano clouds over an icelandic farm taken by a facebook friend's friend's friend. his name is jack kidd from what i can gather.


the erupting volcano has an amazing name that completely baffles my pronunciation intuition: Eyjafjallajökull.

we're supposed to be having redder-than-normal sunsets here due to high level volcano ash blowing over most of europe. the problem is that there are always clouds anyway - this is england! but tonight's sky looks clear of clouds so i'm curious to watch the sunset!

there are more excellent photos of iceland's disruptive volcano at the boston globe's big picture.

So much for a warm Summer. Combined with the Shanghai sulfur plumes we may have crossed into permanent winter.

It’s just amazing how many people are being affected as a result of the volcano in Iceland that erupted. Flights have been canceled and there are health risks involved. I hope the situation improves soon.

Yeah, one of the two jokes doing the rounds is that the volcano was named when an Icelandic geologist fell asleep onto his keyboard.

All right, the other one is "Dear Iceland, we said send cash".
