Fimmvörðuháls Eruption IV

About two weeks ago, March 21st, Eyjafjallajökull glacier erupted at Fimmvörðuháls, which is a very popular hiking route here in Iceland. The eruption isn't that big, but it's quite the display...

The weekend after it started, I walked 32 kilometers to see the eruption. When I saw it, it was quite clear that I had to return during the night. A few days later, I did.

I think I can honestly say that this eruption is one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen, and no photograph can really show how amazing it is!

Of course I filled up my CF cards instantly during my second visit to the eruption site. Here is one of my favorites from that evening...
