As we found out on our recent trip to Iceland - the weather is completely unpredictable and so is nature in general. The land-mass that is Iceland is full of movement - sometimes imperceptible as in the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates that drift apart at about 2 centimeters per year, other times in crazy ways.



On our 2nd day in Iceland, we had been driving up a mountain leaving behind a snowstorm as we ascended we hit what we thought was an almost whiteout situation. It was coming down in thick white patches, what we thought was snow - we later realized was actually ash. We had traveled through an ash cloud, not from a volcanic eruption but from a small fissure in the earth.



As we cleared the ash - we saw the magnificent Super Moon, I took this shot as soon as the storm cleared and the moon appeared
