Latest Pix From Eyjafjallajökull

Post  Guest on Sat 17 Apr - 9:04

Last night we were treated to a truly spectacular sunset here in the NE of Scotland, due to the volcanic fallout from Eyjafjallajökull (I had to c&p that bit! ) The sky was a really rich, sulphuric yellow. If it is the same tonight I'll take some photographs and post them.

I also learned that quite a lot of the paintings by Turner have red skies due to the fallout from Krakatoa. No, it wasn't just in his imagination!

Here is a link to a live webcam showing the volcano still spewing out ash and gunge -

Our airspace in Switzerland is also closed so there are none of the usual vapour trails above the mountain I can see from my living room. Normally, there is a high flight path there. We were supposed to be going to Sicily last week, but had to cancel at the last minute due to work issues, I was really disappointed, but if we'd gone we would've ended up stranded by the airport closures so maybe the cancellation wasn't such a bad thing afterall.

Looking forward to seeing your sunset photos. It's a beautiful day here so perhaps we can expect a spectacular sunset this evening...

I'll be looking out too. I hadn't realised our air space was closed as well. We get alot of high traffic heading over the Alps. Bottle of wine on the balcony later methinks

Yep, definitely an evening for sky gazing with a glass of vino.

Struck me when out walking my friend's dog that if this had happened sooner, the Polish president and all the other passengers wouldn't have been killed in that plane crash. Now it seems that some people won't be able to fly to his funeral. It's rather daunting how fate works and our lives are just hanging on a thread...

Eamonn Holmes on Sky - "Why can't we just drop a nuclear bomb on the volcano."

Good idea, Eamonn! Let's turn the ash cloud radioactive. Pillock!

Here's the best one I have seen so far. You can see why the ancients thought that their gods lived in the volcano.

That photo is awesome isn't it and pretty sinister too ?
Can't believe Holmes made such an idiotic comment!! Was it a failed attempt at humour??!
