Bjorn Arnason

Bjorn Arnason is a photographer based in Reykjavik, Iceland who has mastered the law of thirds. His work plays with space and balance in an interesting way.

If you were trying to fly anywhere besides NYC to Orlando or something, your flight was probably delayed or cancelled due to the steam and smoke wafting over and under flight paths along with the ash that has the ability to knock out jet engines. FOR REAL. This flickr set, curated by Yahoo! Editors’ Picks (who?) showcases some of the most heart-wrenchingly beautiful natural disaster images I have ever seen.
