On Wednesday, April 14th, the volcano under the Eyjafjallajokull glacier in Iceland erupted. It was dormant for 200 years and yes, you read that first part correctly. A glacier with a volcano underneath it. Word, Earth? 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.

And that’s all I’m going to say about that.
