#110 ash clouds?

110/365 ash clouds?, originally uploaded by rosipaw.

Blue skies most of the day but in the afternoon, for a while, ominously dark, hanging clouds appeared. Couldn’t help thinking that they had been carried by winds from the volcano in Iceland. But, of course, there is no certainty. This could be a picture for today’s Daily Shoot challenge, too:

Make a photo of something that isn’t there.

It’s very rare that we here in Finland are affected by any kind of natural disasters. We are located in a safe ‘pocket’ from stormy oceans, so no tsunamis. Nor do we ever experience hurricanes or earthquakes. No volcanoes here either, no high mountains with the threat of avalanches in winter. Yet, for the last week, Mother Nature has forced us to reassess life as we know it.

No idea yet whether I and four students will be able to fly to Singapore next Tuesday, for the second school exchange this year. We are preparing, and hoping for the best but everything is on hold and there is no certainty of that either.

A good reminder of how small we people are in the great infinity, and how, in the end, nothing can be taken for granted.
