Iceland Volcano Pictures

Share  |

I've had volcano ash on my car for a few days now. It looks, as you can imagine, a mess, but I'm leaving it there for fear that washing  the vehicle would result in ash being rubbed into the surface of the paint. Hopefully a shower of rain would do the trick safely. Of course, I'm not complaining. After all, the poor souls in Iceland have to live through a thousand times worse than a filthy, volcanic-ash-covered car.
My cousin sent me these pictures (below) yesterday which made me realise the real impact of what is at stake for the Icelanders. My thoughts are with them.
Note: I would've given credit here, but I don't know who these photos belong to.

about the airline inconveniences.

Some spectacular photographs here Anne. I feel sorry for those poor horses and other animals I have seen on the news covered in ashes.

So far no ashes or extra dust here where I live but my daughter, who lives in Coventry, also had her car covered.

I think that it's easy to become overwhelmed when we get out of our comfort zone (not being able to travel etc). We can only look at the big picture and see where the read destruction is. I hope that they can rebuild very soon.
Thanks for the visit, girls.

Those are fantastic shots, though not very nice to live through, I'm sure. Prayer are with them!

I can't imagine what the people there are going through..Spectacular images!

The photos are spectacular, but the devastation is sad. My prayers go out to them also. We do not realize how fortunate we are.

I see you had a visitor from the Bronx. I lived in the Bronx for a number of years. My last two children were born there. It brings back memories.

Take care & God bless!

Although the outcome was quite horrific, nature is still spectacular and awesome. We sometimes get ash from Mt Etna here but it has never been anything comparable to what happened in Iceland (thank goodness).

Anne Lyken-Garner said...

You're right, Judy. These kinds of things open up the world in the right perspective: we don't know how blessed we are.

Loree, I've never lived near a volcano. This is the first time I've even seen volcanic ash, and it's a tiny amount by comparison.

Wow thanks for sharing the pics, Anne.
They are amazing.

Anne Lyken-Garner said...

You're welcome, Glynis. I thought so too.

Nature pictures like these are sublime, whether they depict beauty or danger. Thanks for sharing.

I thought they were beautiful too. I'm glad I'm not the only one, Medeia.
