The notorious #Eyjafjallajökull that disrupted flights between North America and Europe in 2010. I still remember anxiously watching the news and checking daily updates of the eruption a week before my trip to Western Europe. Thankfully my flight wasn’t cancelled and the trip went on as planned. This volcano’s name is quite a mouthful. I’ve tried to say it correctly so many times but unfortunately, I can’t seem to say it right. Lol!

Dyrhólaey, Iceland, December 2017. What a view! The usually black Sólheimasandur plain all covered in snow. In the top left you can see the Vestmannaeyjar islands. In the top right you can see the famous Eyjafjallajökull, that erupted in 2010, and below the Pétursey mountain. If you are a fan of Game of Thrones, this is the view you see when the Wall comes down in the last episode of Season 7. #dyrhólaey #sólheimasandur #vestmannaeyjar #eyjafjallajökull #pétursey #iceland #gameofthrones #southofthewall #inspiredbyiceland #everydayiceland #beyondthelands_

Skógafoss, the stunning, staggering visual treat of a waterfall in Southern Iceland.

Located at the Skógar village, this waterfall is fed by two glaciers, Eyjafjallajokul (prer-nun-see-eye-shun: aye-yeah-fya-tah-yoke-thil....or just E15 [eee-fifteen] if your tongue's struggling to keep up) and Myrdalsjokull (myr-dulls-yoke-thil). .

The force of the Skogafoss causes a continuous spray when it hits the ground, often creating a rainbow when the sun is out (notice it in the middle of the picture?) .
.

Earthquakes and volcanic eruptions are frequent in Iceland. The cliffs of the waterfall were formerly sea cliffs, and I believe the sea's receded now by a few kilometres south. In our world where our coastlines are are constantly being threatened by rising sea levels, it's interesting to note that the landmass of Iceland is feeding off the earth's belly (where do you think the volcanic lava came from?), and constantly shaping up and perhaps growing in size owing to all the tremors and eruptions.
.
E15 may be atleast a distantly familiar name if you were ever stranded at an airport because of a volcanic eruption in 2010 which momentarily brought many airliners to a screeching halt. I mean who would ever believe that the E15 is actually a volcano which lies under a perenial ice cap?!?! I was curious if the E15 eruption was the worst Iceland had seen in recent times. The response I got from an Icelander was: ''yeah, that's what the world thinks. But the eruption in Grimsvötn (another volcano which erupted in 2011) was much more grave and intense for us Icelanders. Sadly, it didn't catch the attention of the international media because their flights were not disrupted, you see!'' Apparently the wind direction during the Grimsvötn eruption caused the smoke and ashes to be restricted to the Arctic region unlike what happened when the E15 erupted. Thus, the mightier Grimsvötn eruption quietly sank into obscurity without making a whimper in the international media. .

Winter solstice is fast approaching and so the days are really short here in Iceland, with only about 4 hours of daylight. Still, the sun manages to paint our glaciers, lakes and volcanoes with vibrant colours.

The foreboding desolate landscape walking towards (and over) the Eyjafjallajokull volcano in Iceland. Like nothing you have ever seen! Anyone else dared to take the pass from porsmork to skogar? #eyjafjallajökull #iceland #wilderness #volcano #mountains #trail #adventure #getoutside #landscapephotography #canon #happy #hikingadventures #hiking

"La cascata islandese #Skógafoss è originata dal fiume #Skógaá, proveniente dal ghiacciaio #Eyjafjallajökull su un salto che in altri tempi era una scogliera; oggi invece il mare dista diverse decine di km."
Siete pronti a fotografare i migliori arcobaleni dell'#Islanda?

#tbt a un frío perfecto recorriendo cascadas Islandesas. Esta, Seljalandsfoss, está al final del río Seljalands que nace en el glaciar del volcán #eyjafjallajökull , famoso por bloquear el tráfico aéreo en Europa después de su erupción en 2010. Esta cascada cae 60 metros sobre una protuberancia en la montaña que permite dar completamente la vuelta por detrás, pudiéndose apreciar se todos los ángulos.
