    The clouds look more like a painting than the rest of the pic IMO.

    Amazing photograph!

    Yeah, I do, but all in Reykjavik, none down South near the
    Highlands near Eyjafjallajokull (IslandMountainGlacier).

    The newest eruption apparently blew under the glacier's icecap,
    creating floodwaters to the south and tremendous
    steam and ash as opposed to a smooth hot lava flow.

    They evacuated a lot of the locals, but looks like
    this farm is West of the explosion. The wind is
    carrying the plume left to right towards the Southwest.

    This is an evening picture so the colors are nice.

    Yeah that cloud of volcanic ash is now responsible for grounding planes all across the UK as it drifts across us. It's extremely dangerous to aircraft and highly damaging to my 77 year old mother's bank account - she was due to flight out of London on holiday tomorrow, but the planes are all grounded, the holiday is trashed and the travel insurance won't pay up to reimburse her because it's "an act of God"

    I never understood how they could prove that in court. Though they
    usually cite 'force majeur, insurrection, natural
    disaster', etc. I thought that was what the travel insurance
    was for.

    But, I get it after my insurance company told me I was on my
    own with the recent flooding here in this area. They just want
    to collect your money, paying is only when they absolutely
    need to. My forefathers hated insurance companies,
    now I know why.

    Insurance is like a gamble that never really pays out.

    Life Insurance = You place a monthly bet saying 'I bet you Im gonna die' Then they smile, say 'I bet that you dont' and take your money.

    Car Insurance = You place a monthly bet saying 'I bet you Im gonna crash' Then they smile, say 'I bet that you dont' and take your money.

    Health Insurance = You place a monthly bet saying 'I bet you Im gonna get sick' Then they smile, say 'I bet that you dont' and take your money.

    I just cancelled my health insurance.

    I am going to go with tectonic plate movement on
    the Mid Atlantic ridge.

    Guess that blows that carbon footprint reduction deal
    the Icelanders committed to.

    It looks like it was painted by that dude with the fro. I'm too lazy to look up his name.
