Re: 5DMkII does Iceland Armageddon style

Drove 1 hour passed the police block today, as close to the eruption site of eyjafjallajokull as I dared go. Right after sunset the volcano went berserk, and you really need to be there to understand it. Crazy to say the least. I knew I was way too close, but I think the shots came out nice.

The amount of ash it spewed out today was insane. I don´t think airtraffic will be back on in a while.

Cheers

Amazing!

Wonderful image. How close were you?
I assume those tracer lines are from flying debris... and not from lightening?

Yes but how are lightings (?) connected with volcano eruption?

Wowwwwww

wot else can you say, except have you got a few more to share Terje please.

As for the ligthening bolts, these are a frequent occurence during volcanic eruptions. Could I suggest you Google it to find out the mechanics of this phenomenon.

A bit too close to be honest. I drove about 1 hour passed the police block. I wanted to get as close as possible without getting a heart attack. Goal was a 17-20mm wide angle sunset shot of a mirror in the river which turned out great. But then it just went absolutely crazy. I was not sure if I should escape or continue shooting, but I realized I was probably far too close to get away anyway. However the 2-3km lava that shot up landed on the back side of the volcano. I believe I must have been about 4-7km away from the eruption site.

This is taken with 70-200/2.8IS at about 70mm.

Re: Sell - Sell - Sell

I was rewarded last night with a theater that made me shed tears. Money is great and all, but I really just want to share this now. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did last night.
