Eyjafjallajökull

Icelandic horses crossing bay at low tide near Vik and Eyjafjallajökull Glacier.

Lush green cliffs and valleys makeup the coastal landscape at the base of Eyjafjallajökull glacier.

Skogafoss falls seemingly vanishes into the riverbed. South coast of Iceland eastern base of Lush green cliffs and valleys makeup the coastal landscape at the base of Eyjafjallajökull glacier.

With all the news about Iceland and ash clouds I wanted to share some of my images from
the land below the Eyjafjallajökull Glacial Volcano, the south coast of Iceland.
For an assignment I went on a 90 mile horseback trip that skirted the base of Eyjafjallajökull Glacier, on the last
day of the trip.
Lush green coastal valleys and abrupt cliffs make up the landscape beneath the glacier.  The massive
Skogar Falls vanishes into the rocky river bed as it heads for the ocean.  And looking back as we rode our horses
literally into the ocean was the massive icecap of Eyjafjallajökull glacier.
Much of the landscape in these images is now covered and possibly buried in ash.  Not the first time and
certainly not the last.
