The eruptions of the Icelandic volcano, Eyjafjallajökull, literally cast a dark cloud upon the large mountain’s neighboring towns, engulfing square miles of the sky above in a deep haze. It affected more than just those local townships though, as its impact was felt on a global scale as well. However, the remnants of ash and dust left behind in the wake of its eruption – and even during it – have given way to a series of artistic opportunities for those willing and daring enough. Here we get a look at this stunning time lapse video shot by Sean Stiegemeier on his Canon 5D MK II days following the volcano’s initial activity as he is able to capture the beauty of the Icelandic landscape and the force behind one of nature’s most powerful occurrences.
