No shortage of things to write about, but I seem to find tons of shortages on time to sit down and get it done. Even now, with various marketing arrangements for my upcoming novel, spring gardening and cleaning and other challenges on my time, I have to keep this post short. Maybe later this week I can write about the oil spill in the gulf, an ongoing catastrophe that, like the Eyjafjallajökull Volcano, seems to be willing to let me casually find time to write about it. I have to write about Atlantis’ final mission at some point too.
I’m about a month behind on it, but it just won’t quit! It let me be over a month late and still almost get the scoop on something. The above photo is a frame capture of a video that was made half a month ago where photographer Sean Stiegemeier used a Canon 5D MKII camera on a motorized dolly to take some fascinating moving time-lapse video footage of the volcano from several sites around Iceland. The link to the video is below.
He took the video on May 1st and 2nd, the volcano first erupted on April 14th, and on Saturday, May 15th Bill Housley finally gets a chance to write about it. I had a little trouble finding links to images in the major media so late in the game, but searches on Noaa.gov and Space.com yielded some fruit. These are just a sample, do a search on those sites, especially space.com, for more. The name to search for is a little tricky to spell, so just copy/paste this –>Eyjafjallajökull volcano<– into the search box.
