Icelandic Volcano – 9 May 2010


An aerial view showing the crater spewing ash and plumes of grit at the summit of the volcano in southern Iceland

It seems that my blog readers are desperate for news and pictures on the Icelandic Volcano. Well how’s this striking image for you? Taken by Jonathan Leake, I found it on the Times website.

The new ash cloud is reaching 30,000 ft high in the sky, and caused the closure of several airports in Spain and Portugal yesterday. This is, once again, disrupting holiday plans and causing problems for both holiday makers and, in turn, the airports.

Despite the problems, it is stunning…
