As time ticks past and the volcanic eruption in Iceland continues I am becoming ever so slightly more confident that I just might get my chance to photograph this spectacular natural event when I arrive in late July this year – all fingers are still crossed. Irish photographer Peter Cox has recently returned from the eruption site and has written a short essay on how best to photograph the eruption – available on the Luminous Landscape. Thanks Peter! Your essay is very timely and appreciated.
There is also an interesting short essay on a Reuters photographers experience photographing the eruption – specifically on freezing the lightning that is created from the ash particles rubbing together.
