The volcanic eruption of Mt. Eyjafjallajökull may have taken place two years ago, but through the power of photography and David Jon Ogmundsson's impressive eye it might as well have happened yesterday. There to capture it all, David Jon Ogmundsson immortalizes the devastating beauty of the eruption that shook Iceland to its very core.

Based in Reykjavik, David Jon Ogmundsson may be a motion designer by trade, but put a camera into his hands and he could be mistaken for a pro. Capturing the lively electrical currents coursing through and enwrapped by billowing clouds, it almost looks as though an epic battle is taking place in the center of that destructive force. Before the ash left its debilitating mark on the country, the eruption could have been enjoyed for its breathtaking beauty.
