As the ash cloud from the Eyjafjallajökull eruption in Iceland continues to remind people all over the world of nature’s immense power, I’ve been finding more great photographs that document this literally earth-shaking event. These vivid shots from the Icelandic countryside were taken by Julia Staples, a staff photographer for The Reyjavik Grapevine. See more at the Grapevine or on the photographer’s website.
