A Great Picture Series from the Beginning of the Eruption

By Iceland Review

We got these pictures from Guido A.J. Stevens (Gyst) who took them on Saturday night about an hour or two after the Eruption started. The beautiful clouds around the volcanic smoke are very unusual indeed. Then we see how the dark clouds form on the horizon, eventually falling like a dark curtain, blocking all scenery. This took only two hours.

You can see more pictures by Gyst here.







All photos taken on Saturday May 21 by Gyst, Guido A.J. Stevens ,
