A spectacular photo album that you just have to see

A friend of mine linked this album on his Facebook page. It’s all photos of the volcano in Iceland erupting, and they’re all great, but the one above particularly caught my eye. It’s got so much going for it that the volcano almost seems like an afterthought: the delicate pastel tones of the twilit sky, the marvelous herd of shaggy horses with their blazing chestnut coats, and even the unruly grass all around them (which is much more detailed in the original; I had to scale this one down to fit the page). It’s a startling reminder that while Iceland is small and often overlooked, there is WAY more to it than what makes the news.

    I’m not on FB so I can’t see his page.
    Is there an outside link to the photo album?

  2. It’s on Facebook too. You might be able to find the photographer if you google her name, though…
