An amazing photo of the eruption

"This photo was taken by a man named Ólafur Eggertsson from the farm Þorvaldseyri.
It’s been making the rounds in [Icelandic] cyberspace and I (Alda in The Iceland Weather Report) don’t know the original source, and can’t post a link."

(Ólafur Eggertsson is half Norwegian, but according to Norwegian Aftenposten the photo is from Reuters).

Neither can I, but the photo is so beautiful and spectacular that in spite of all the troubles in Northern European Air Trafic, take a deeper look at the photo and see "so perfectly illustrates the beauty, magnificence and power of our incredible forces of nature is, and how small the human structures are in comparison".

Remember 2012 which is said to be the end-date of a 5,125-year-long cycle in the Mayan Long Count calendar. For more doomsday predictions, see the movie 2012
