Fimmvörðuháls/Eyjafjallajökull south coast Iceland

The erupting volcano in Fimmvörðuháls/Eyjafjallajökull on the south coast of Iceland, April 2010. A view from Fljótshlíð.



My volcano images have got some recognition for the past days, as many of them where published in the British papers today and yesterday. The Guardian and The Indipendent even had an opening spreadsheet of the images. Along with the images, they also added some striking adjectives to spice the images even more. As me beeing a daredevil... risking my life for volcano images? (Daredevil is going to be my title in the phonebook for now on). So even if the Icelandic volcano is slowly cooling down, the photos live forever I guess.


Cheers, Skarpi
