Iceland Volcano: A Video Time Lapse

Iceland Volcano: A Video Time Lapse

[ May 19, 2010 - 11:46am ]

A month ago, I was in Iceland skiing on dormant volcanoes while the Eyjafjallajökull volcano was erupting and blowing enough smoke and ash to shut down all of Europe's airports. The volcano is burping more ash now, and American filmmaker Sean Stiegemeier flew in to capture this incredible time lapse of the volcano. Check out the video here.

A month ago, I was in Iceland skiing on dormant volcanoes on the northern part of the island while the Eyjafjallajökull volcano on the southern tip of Iceland was erupting and blowing enough smoke and ash to shut down all of Europe's airports. The volcano is burping more ash now, and American filmmaker Sean Stiegemeier flew in to capture this incredible time lapse of the volcano. Check out the video here.

Iceland, Eyjafjallajökull - May 1st and 2nd, 2010 from Sean Stiegemeier on Vimeo.

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.

I am of course accepting sponsors to send me back there for more please...!! haha
