Icelandic ash?Saturday April 17, 2010
Last thursday a more red then usual sky was expected, due to the ash, high in the sky, from the Icelandic volcano eruption. Compared to a week earlier the Oostvaardersdijk was full of people who had decided to take pictures of this natural phenomenon. As soon as the sun was not visible anymore, everybody was gone, they've probably never heard of the golden hour.
The next day it was said that it was not certain the Icelandic ash had reached Holland the night before, so they didn't know whether this had caused a more red the usual sunset. Judging by what I saw, there was no real difference. The sunset on the next was even less colorful.
As usual in the hour after the sunset, the sky was still full of beautiful colors. Even though it was cold and very windy, we stayed until there was no more color left in the sky. I even took some pictures at ISO 3200, which were kind of noisy, but with some noise reduction in Photoshop, it was removed nicely.
