Default Eruption in Iceland

This is the magnificent mountain Lómagnúpur in southeast Iceland. See my photo essay Eruption in Iceland for context.

Rajan,

These natural mega events are meant to humble us that we're not the master of the planet, after all!

Actually, it is the road to Lómagnúpur, isn't it?

Great capture, and the symmetrical road is a great idea. I also like the B&W conversion.

Like, I'll never forget driving down that road along the south of the country, one of the longest and straightest roads in the world with a 50mph speed limit. One of my main memories of Iceland is a scene not at all dissimilar to the above!

I know the feeling well. Some of that frisson can also be had on drives through Death Valley and other areas of the Mojave desert.

Pretty much like a nuclear weapon going off! I wonder how it compares in release of energy?
