Showcasing cool pictures and videos of the Eyjafjallajökull Norway volcano eruption in April 2010 and other volcanoes around the world. These following pictures show amazing lightening strikes and hellish ash clouds from the Iceland Volcano Eyjafjallajökull as it caused havok for travellers across Europe for weeks in 2010.

Cool Pictures of 2010 Iceland Volcano
Our two favorite pictures so far are these capturing both the volcano and the Northern Lights…cool!
These following pictures are taken from National Geographic [Link}.
Also Christopher Lund who is a brilliant photographer took some of these pictures below.
Ash Dust Clouds Pictures

In this picture made available by the Icelandic Coastguard, taken Wednesday April 14, 2010, smoke and steam rises from the volcano under the Eyjafjallajokull glacier in Iceland, which erupted for the second time in less than a month, melting ice, shooting smoke and steam into the air and forcing hundreds of people to flee rising floodwaters. Authorities evacuated 800 residents from around the glacier as rivers rose by up to 10 feet (3 meters). Emergency officials and scientists said the eruption under the ice cap was 10 to 20 times more powerful than one last month, and carried a much greater risk of widespread flooding.

Top Gear Toyota Hilux Volcano Pictures
Showcasing pictures from Top Gear when they went up the Eyjafjallajökull in a Toyota Hilux. Little did they know the active volcano would cause so much European travel havoc. Luckily, the Top Gear cast and crew escaped just hours before the volcano erupted. Finally a bit of good PR for Toyota. As cool cars go, the Toyota Hilux remains truely one of the most resilient around!
By modifying the same Toyota Hilux they took to the north pole with water-cooled tires and a roof-mounted ash-guard, the Top Gear team just scaled an active Volcano in Iceland for an upcoming episode. “They never take risk!” said an Icelandic Volcano expert who traveled with the crew as an adviser.
Like all other episodes, this one appears to have been carefully planned, with full permission from the Icelandic government. In addition to volcanoes and a collapsed economy, Iceland is known for its ridiculously epic off-roading so we expect the episode to be insanely awesome and heroic.
