Volcano + ethereal music = "ooooh"

I spent a mildly tense day on Monday waiting to see if my flight from Belfast to London would be grounded because of the volcanic ash cloud. It wasn't, making this the worst anecdote in the history of the written word. But here's a stunning video of Eyjafjallajökull, set to the music of Jonsi, formerly of Sigur Ros. Flick on the HD button, maximise the video and go "waow-wee" for a minute or two.

Iceland, Eyjafjallajökull - May 1st and 2nd, 2010

Jonsi is, of course, from Iceland, home of the volcano. In essence, that makes the track above (Kolniður, from his album Go) the Icelandic equivalent of Waterloo Sunset or Parklife.

Suddenly, I feel like emigrating.
