Great Video of the Iceland Volcano

Ever since the Eyjafjallajökull volcano in Iceland wrecked my European vacation (see Doug versus The Volcano), I have been a bit obsessed with the volcano’s activity.

I ran across this beautiful time-lapsed video of the continuing eruptions:

Iceland, Eyjafjallajökull – May 1st and 2nd, 2010

“So I saw all of these mediocre pictures of that volcano in Iceland nobody can pronounce the name of, so I figured I should go and do better. But the flights to get over took forever as expected (somewhat). 4 days after leaving I finally made it, but the weather was terrible for another 4. Just before leaving it got pretty good for about a day and a half and this is what I managed to get.

Wish I had more time. I missed all the cool Lightning and the Lava of the first eruption. But I figure this will just be a trial run for another day.”
