Now that the Iceland volcano event has died down, lava has cooled and ash has blown far away enough allow Europeans to fly more or less wherever the hell they want, we can only sit back and feel nostalgic for that bygone week when the skies were quiet and sort of tinged with brown.

‘Those were the hazy halcyon days of the spring of 2010,’ we might say one day with a wistful look in our eyes. ‘Sure there was more soot, but there was less pollution‘.

In the meantime we can look back by searching through countless images on Google. Why not start by haveing a look at this impressive slideshow of shots from the Telegraph:

‘Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokull volcano and the aurora borealis or Northern Lights’

Also, be sure to visit this blog, which has a great mixture of spectacular photos of Eyjafjallajökull erupting plus satellite images and some great pictures showing the human side of the volcano drama. It is highly recommended for those interested in all things Eyjafjallajökull.
