This was the renowned eruption of Eyafjallajokull as it sent up a colossal plume of ash towards Europe. It was the day after the Fimmvörðuhals volcano faded that the huge one erupted (fourteenth April 2010). They are connected by underground volcanic tubes. The genuine concern was that Fimmvörðuhals could trigger Eyjafjalljökull and the feared Katla volcano. This was my second encounter with a wider focal length.
Also, this time I had the option to drive much nearer to the eruption. I like the manner in which the footbridge appears to welcome you towards this incredible and ruinous volcanic power in Iceland.
The eruption made an immense cloud of ash a few kilometers high and the warmth from the magma under the ice made a Jöklahlaup (glacier flood). Workers battled to break an opening in the ring road to save a road bridge. The entire region was submerged and colossal squares of ice were stranded everywhere. It was an anxious time for nearby villages, however the floods before long subsided.
My first excursion out there was with my partner with an endeavor to catch a portion of the lightning forks. After two days we returned and I figured out how to borrow a 70-200mm telephoto lens. Tragically the lighting had stopped by at that point, yet we had the option to draw nearer than before. This was taken with my 24mm as we got as close as we could on foot.
