Beautiful! love the photo
Merci Domi d'être "monté" jusqu'ici !
Sí Luis! Yo también. Tengo muchos fotos en Las Alpujarras. :)
Hola Diego! Cómo estás? I think you are looking at the photo, 'Steam at Fimvorduháls,' which was actually taken by my Icelandic friend Gissur Kolbeinnsson. Just before Eyafjallajokull erupted two years ago, a fissure opened up between that glaceier and Mírdalsjokull producing a lot of lava and only local coarse grained dust. I went back to Iceland in August for the first time since the 1960s.... I have a few more photos yet to post... You have a lot of photos which I must look at :) Greetings from England, Philip Sutton.
I think it was morning, so hello! The islands always look hazy from the mainland.
A volcanic bomb is still trying to expand from the inside while the outside is solidifying. If it is large enough it can shatter explosively in mid air.... not good to be near :(
The eruption caused a 'Jokullhlaup' from the crater into Gígjokull. Huge amounts of warm water tore great masses of ice from the glacier and spread them over this plain.

Use the zoom to see the drama. The stricken vehicle is almost out of sight.... the jeep went to attempt a rescue, but later drove away.
Does anyone know what finally happened?
Hi Philip, this was not possible, as poisonous gases flowed from the crater on the flood plain. In fact, it was already quite dangerous where we were, because two in our party became dizzy after spending a short time on the ridge where this photo was taken.
Thankx a lot Jorge for your comment! I´m glad you liked this image of the fall!
