Photographer's Note

View from the top of the Laki volcano. Here is the south view of the Lakagigar volcanic fissure produced during one of the biggest icelandic eruption in 1783.
It is known to be one of the factors of the french revolution because of its atmospheric effects. The gazes were carried in the Northern Hemisphere and caused cooling and acid rains that damaged cultures making people more hungry.
