Thank you Dave - it was a kind of another world, the light, the sound and also all the people gathered there in this cold weather(about -20°C)and you could also see the stars up there ;o)

People were walking in guided tours, traveling on snowmobile, cycles, motorcycles, cars, helicopters, airplanes, home made cars, you just name it.

Here is a link to cyclists touring to the Glacier: http://www.hfr.is/

Amazing photos! I do hope all this is taking place far from your home though -- kinda scary looking ;-)?!
Blessings,

At the moment the eruption is happening in Fimmvorduhals near Eyjafjallajokull Glacier. About 600 people were evacuated the first night but they all got permission to turn back home after the two first days.
But if Katla in Myrdalsjokull Glacier (http://hraun.vedur.is/ja/Katla2009/Myrdalsjokull.jpg) wakes up we might be in a big trouble. http://www.ruv.is/katla/
