Awesome photographs, it really is mind boggling how a person can even breath with air so thickly covered in ash.
I feel for the farmers, concerned about getting their livestock to safety, and yet what exactly is safe around all those fumes ?
Thank you for sharing such poignant pictures.

First I must say to anyone who sees this comment that you absolutly MUST see these pictures. You have no idea. You will never forget them, they are amazing. Sandra, what's the reason for the lightening and why did you not know that I would ask that? You must have found out by now. What a pretty green pineapple top! Will you eat it when it gets bigger?

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Hooray for the Pineapple... Can't wait til it's big enough to eat!!!!! Keep us posted, Sandra.

Did you see the video on the news showing how all of the news media people were pronouncing that big word??... It was so funny.... Bet it took you awhile to spell it out in your post....

Hugs,
Betsy

Phenoenal pictures. I feel so badly for the poor farmers and their animals.
I have been enjoying your posts but have had great difficulty posting, hopefully now resolved.

Amazing photos, the first one of the lightning is one of the best I have seen of that effect.

Photo #10 brought back some memories, it looks very similar to an ash cloud that hit Anchorage while I lived there. We could see it coming an hour before it arrived, then the sky turned black. Having been through three (each smaller than this one) eruptions I really feel for the people affected by this event.

Love your new header shot.

What a great shot, Sandra! I love the Pineapple Chronicles. :o)

This photo is really pretty; I like the way you shot it from directly above. The colour scheme, how it seems to have rings coming out from the center, is fun to look at.
