Amazing Time-Lapse of the Icelandic Volcano


It's frustrating to see mediocre photos of a tremendous event.  When it comes to the eruption of Eyjafjallaj√∂kull - the Icelandic volcano that recently erupted - there were more amateur photographs floating around the net than professional ones.  That's what inspired Sean Stiegemeier to travel to Iceland.

"I saw all of these mediocre pictures of that volcano in Iceland nobody can pronounce the name of, so I figured I should go and do better," says Stiegemeier.  "4 days after leaving I finally made it, but the weather was terrible for another 4. Just before leaving it got pretty good for about a day and a half and this is what I managed to get."

The result is an absolutely stunning two minutes of time-lapse photography.  You can check out the video in high definition here.
