Volcanic Sunset?


Due to the cloud of ash drifting down from the volcano erupting in Iceland, we were promised a spectacular sunset...

Although the sunset must be poor consolation to the many thousands of people unable to travel to-day, due to the closure of all UK and Irish airports. No flights will be allowed until at least 1.00pm to-morrow. This cloud of volcanic ash has also affected flights and airports in most other Northern European countries.

The photo was taken from Strand Road, Portstewart looking towards the Inishowen Peninsula.

The volcanic eruption certainly made for a beautiful sky... sometimes beauty is worth a little inconvenience.

Excellent photo!

I guess I've been away from the news for a while ... I didn't know it had erupted - and that the airports had been close! Wow, at least it makes for a gorgeous sunset!

Very beautiful coloring (forest fires do that good/bad beauty, too) It's nice you got a photo over the water.

Indeed the sunsets are poor consolation but we'll get round to enjoying them again eventually.
