Sunset Blues at Reynisdrangar

View On Black is bigger and better

After two months of volcano eruptions in Iceland, Fimmvörðuháls from March 21 - April 13. and then Eyjafjallajökull from April 14 to May 23. Many great adventures and phototrips, I finally got the change do do what I really love about photograpy, SEASCAPES!.

The sunset and clouds were not so dramatic this weekend, but I also like seascapes during "blue hour" and minimalism scenes. The natural rock sculptures Reynisdrangar, at Vik in Myrdal, are usually been photographed from the other side, the eas side, so I prefer the west side of them. The waves on this coastline in Reynisfjara area often huge, and sometimes deadly, but on this night however the ocean was strangely calm, my boots got flushed anyway but that's a different story.

Cheers, Skarpi

Mount Doom - Volcano Eyjafjallajökull on the of mai. Thunders and lightnings striking through the black ash moody sky above the erupting crater. Steam "skull" figure rising from the melting Gígjökull glacier while 1000°C hot lava bursts it's way down the glacier.

Right after KAPiNED/10 and CAPiNED/10, Heidy and I stopped in Dieppe and then in Etretat in Normandy.

The NW wind was very light and the Dan Leigh R8 Delta could just lift a Nano carbon rig with the GoPro Hero HD.
Despite the light wind, the aerology created by the cliffs made the flight quite challenging !

Painted with ash - Eyjafjallajökull peninsula

The erupting volcano Eyjafjallajökull on the 24th of april. The wind turning the ash mist towards the west coast of Iceland, shutting down all flight in the country for several days. The farmers in tha Eyjafjöll peninsula started to clean their homes, machinery and fields, after some weeks of dark ash cloud hoovering over the area. The thickness of the ash layers on the fields were up to 4cm thick in some areas.
