The volcano in Iceland (Eyjafjallajökull) erupted a week ago and it was a real risk for all of us.Especially in Europe,the air traffic almost stopped and caused big problems for the airways.
Anyway,many professional photographers took unbelievable photos during the eruption and show us how strong the nature is.Today i want to showcase some of these photos.For me, the scary part is the ravages of this eruption and at the end of this post you can see these photos.

The erupting volcano in Iceland sent new tremors on April 19, but the ash plume which has caused air traffic chaos across Europe has dropped to a height of about 2 km (1.2 mi), the Meteorological Office said.(REUTERS/NERC Satellite Receiving Station, Dundee University, Scotland) SOURCE:Boston Globe

The volcano in southern Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokull glacier sends ash into the air just prior to sunset ON Friday, April 16, 2010. Thick drifts of volcanic ash blanketed parts of rural Iceland on Friday as a vast, invisible plume of grit drifted over Europe, emptying the skies of planes and sending hundreds of thousands in search of hotel rooms, train tickets or rental cars.
