The incredible views of the Eyjafjallajökull Volcano
Thursday 20, May 2010
Whilst the ash from the now famous Eyjafjallajökull volcano continued to cause holiday chaos across many European airports, there is no getting away from the fact that it’s an amazing sight to see.
Sean Stiegemeier decided it was a vision worth sharing. And so he did, taking him 4 days to get there, he beautifully shot the following scene displaying the cause of all recent air travel problems.
Sean Stiegemeier said:
"So I saw all of these mediocre pictures of that volcano in Iceland nobody can pronounce the name of, so I figured I should go and do better. But the flights to get over took forever as expected (somewhat). 4 days after leaving I finally made it, but the weather was terrible for another 4. Just before leaving it got pretty good for about a day and a half and this is what I managed to get. Wish I had more time. I missed all the cool Lightning and the Lava of the first eruption. But I figure this will just be a trial run for another day."
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
